Designathon is a one day design hackathon, with the goal of
fostering design thinking at UCLA. We aim to challenge
your scope of design knowledge, and introduce you to
the hard and soft skills involved in developing an
expertise in the field, all while getting the
chance to create something exciting that solves a
real world problem.

Design thinking is a human centric problem solving process that emphasizes empathy, ideation, and experimentation to creatively tackle big issues.
Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, freshman or senior, you're welcome to participate in this all-inclusive event!
Bring your Bruin card or any government-issued ID to check in to the event. If you have a laptop, you should bring that as well (and chargers).
Design thinking is all about embracing simple shifts in your mindset to approach problems from a new direction. What you'll learn is super applicable to any major, career, or industry.
Our workshops will be catered towards guiding you throughout the day at each step in creating your projects, but if you want to read up on the design thinking process beforehand, please feel free!
We'll be doing projects in teams of 3-4, but no worries if you don't have a group. We'll be meeting people, doing some #bonding, you'll get on a team at the event.
