“At the core of Future Design School is this notion of developing and cultivating problem solvers, kids who have a flexible, adaptable skill set, and the creative confidence really to tackle whatever comes their way. That’s the essence of the entrepreneurial spirit. What you want is kids who look at the world’s obstacles as opportunities that they can roll up their sleeves and solve, and that they don’t need to wait until they’re adults to wrestle with real issues.”
– Sandra Nagy
“If we’ve seen anything that should be an inspiration for these kids in the last year, it’s the fact that we got a vaccine out in eight months. If you don’t believe in the power of human ingenuity and what we can do together, collaboratively working to solve a real problem. We don’t take that moment to showcase that to kids and what might be possible, then we’ve missed the moment.”
