    • “Are you serious, it's our opinion, it's what we want to do?”
    • —Mr. Mohammed “Kids… complain about the school system, it is great to hear a solution for once!”
    • How did we get here? What tools were they using? How is this similar to other community efforts globally? What did the participants discover? What impact has it had on their lives?
    • frog is a global innovation firm that designs and builds new products, services and experiences for large, medium and start-up organizations
    • Man had landed on the moon and young people wanted to change the world; we all wanted to make a difference. I wanted to make people smile. – Hartmut Esslinger, 1969
    • 1 People think design is about creating new uses for technology… but it’s first about understanding the needs of groups of people.
    • 2 We build practical skills and acquire knowledge by participating in group problem-solving activities.
    • CHALLENGE Understand the nature and value of connection, and the digital connection models of urban girls in Nairobi.
    • APPROACH Train girls in local girl groups to be explorers. Collaboratively plan and co-design solutions for their needs.

    • “(When we learned to brainstorm), we realized the ideas were in our head... we didn’t have to be told or wait to read them in a book.” -girl participant
    • “I’ve been so happy since starting this program of exploring. I feel more confident than the time that I came—I was too shy. Now I’m meeting other girls. I am happy.” -girl participant
    • 3 Group problem solving is empowering. It helps us build stronger relationships with people in our communities.
    • How can I do this in my community? How might we translate the design process into something centered on skill development and knowledge-sharing for communities?
    • How can I do this in my community? How might we turn the creation and communication of ideas into a vehicle to teach inquiry, leadership and problem solving to anyone, from any culture?

    • —Nathan Sundberg, SCAD Graduate Student “I think that this whole process has been illustrative of the role that I see designers having in any process: as an enabler of voices. Everyone has a story and a point of view, but they don’t always get a chance to communicate [it]. They don’t always realize that their point of view is important.”
    • —SCAD CAT Pilot Participants “Through this program, I actually get to talk and fit in.” “It's not only school. Y'all help us with our home lives, too… It's a time to vent, but also fun.” “Within our school, we’re not heard, so to have a program like this come and actually hear us out… and [let us] have an opinion about things…” “We have a voice.”
