Session Survey

Outreach and education is important for those of us advocating for human-centered design, but who says UX outreach can’t start with offering insights to motivated children? After three consecutive years of hosting a UX Workshop for middle schoolers at a local, annual Girls in STEM day, I have learned a lot through trial and error about how to introduce youth to UX concepts and what ideas seem to stick with them. At the start of the workshop, I always promise the kids that they will never look at doors, apps, and buttons the same way again. I hope that’s true!
