Catapult develops education programs for teams or individuals who want to know more about employing a people-centered approach to social challenges. Our programs include: workshop design and facilitation, custom training sessions, mentorship, and events. We tailor our workshops and trainings to meet the needs of our clients. As an example, we led the development and management of a one-day convening for Native American industry, government, and students concentrated on hands-on group learning and focused dialogues on how to apply technology trends and business innovation to boost economic development on tribal lands.
All of our education work leverages methodologies, frameworks, and tools that we use during our design consultations. We are always learning from the field and believe that the best education comes from doing. When engaging with Catapult, expect to be an active participant, investigator, and explorer. We refer to our approach as “labs-based” because we emphasize hands-on learning and experimenting to bring to life an event, workshop, training, or facilitation session. We regularly bring prototypes of products as a teaching tool and use case studies and stories directly from our work to ground our teaching in reality. As a team of designers, engineers, and entrepreneurs—we like to get our hands dirty and believe it’s the best way to learn.
