Get Creative!...the Smart Way

Get Creative!...the Smart Way


"Progress always involves risk; you can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first.” —Frederick Wilcox, English athlete


Join us for this creative adventure! Students will train their minds to think creatively as we learn all about various creativity techniques that writers, advertisers, designers, and scientists use (or find helpful) in their endeavors. During each class, students will analyze real cases from different industries, learn tools and techniques to come up with new ideas, and apply their knowledge in their own projects inspired by different creative careers. There is no doubt that this class will be a winner for your child! After this course, students will:

  • Know and apply creativity and problem-solving techniques such as: the method of focal objects, SCAMPER, fantastic binomial, anticipatory failure determination, and six thinking hats
  • Set goals for activities based on a specific problem and existing opportunities for solving it, formulate hypotheses, anticipate the final result, assess and test options to identify the most effective solution and to put ideas into action
  • Reflect on assumptions gained from one context to another unrelated context and identify new meaning
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of ideas, products, performances, methods and courses of action against given criteria
