The Our Kids review of Design Exchange (DX)

 

To say that the Design Exchange (DX) is unique would be a vast understatement. Part museum, part educational institution, part industry crucible, located in the heart of the financial district, within the historic location of the Toronto Stock Exchange—there’s simply nothing like it. It was conceived as means of providing a hub for design professionals highlighting the role of design in culture, industry, and business. In the decades since, it’s done far more, hosting conferences, workshops, seminars, and hundreds of world-class exhibitions. Just travelling to this place, in this location, every day to participate in a camp is part of the experience. Working alongside professional designers is, too. The sessions are the epitome of what we think of as the best of STEM instruction, if not expressed in exactly that way: gathering kids together to pool their talents, working together to solve a range of problems, creatively, enthusiastically, and collaboratively. The themes that the sessions are focussed around are playful, and designed to get kids thinking in new ways about things that are of high interest to them, from fashion design to adventures in augmented reality. Guest speakers and field trips are part of the experience. Staff are keen to keep things fresh, so even the sessions that seem to occur annually are overhauled to ensure that no ground is covered twice. For the right campers—and no doubt there are many of them—the Design Exchange (DX) programs can be transformational.
