Applied Creativity Labs: What’s involved?

IVE’s Applied Creativity Labs (ACLs) aim to give children and young people the creative behaviours and thinking skills they need to develop innovative solutions to real world challenges.

How? Watch the explainer videos below to find out!

Step One: Finding solutions to real life problems with divergent thinking.

We begin the process by presenting young people with an overview of what the ‘challenge’ is (ie. air pollution), we then deliver our bespoke creativity training and give them access to a resource-bank of ‘experts’ from industry, business and universities.

Step Two: Bringing ideas together with convergent thinking.

Young people then explore, develop, and refine their best original, applicable solutions to the challenge.

Step Three: Sharing your idea.

The groups prepare to pitch their best original, applicable solutions to the challenge to a panel, dragon’s den style. The best ideas are considered for further development.
