The Design Thinking Post-Primary School pilot programme is an art and craftroom action research initiative for post-primary art students and their teachers across Ireland. The programme encourages collaborative skills and problem solving. The Design Thinking Post-Primary School pilot programme complements curricular learning in the visual arts by enhancing imaginative composition, design and craftwork, and is an enjoyable hands-on approach to making. The programme provides funding bursaries to enable post-primary schools to engage in creative projects with professional craftspeople and designer-makers in the classroom setting.

The Design Thinking Post-Primary School pilot programme is delivered in partnership with designCORE and Institute of Technology Carlow.
