We believe that good design should be at the heart of every young person’s education.
The Pupil Design Awards aim to:
address the decline of design in secondary education;
introduce social design and design thinking to school children;
broaden definitions of how design can be applied.
As a sister project to the RSA Student Design Awards, central to the Pupil Design Awards is understanding the vast and complex role of social design in improving the lives of others.
The mission of design thinking is to translate observations into insights and insights into products and services that will improve lives.
RSA and Design
Design is in the lifeblood of the RSA and it has a rich history of supporting design as a professional discipline since the early 20th Century.
