Hello out-of-the-box thinkers!

XD Chicago is excited, as always, to invite you to use your skills and
help solve problems as designers, around education. Education can be
accessible to all, regardless of socioeconomic status, and we'd like
to brainstorm, through exercises, how to make this happen! As
experience designers, the educational space is a unique challenge and
exciting, socially just, opportunity. We're going to begin the session
by splitting into groups and presenting a scenario that we'd like you
to solve! In many cases, the path to the solution can be the most
valuable take away. At the end of the evening each group will present
the way they solved the problem, what their result was and any
highlights about the process, that they enjoyed.

This event will take place on Aug 10th, from 6:00pm-8:00pm.

Riley Graham (Interaction Designer), and Chris Wilkinson (UI
developer) will be facilitating this community workshop. They really
like what they do and are excited to host you! Yes, you! ...and by the
way, you look great today!

This session will be sponsored by ThoughtWorks and hosted at the
ThoughtWorks Chicago office. It's located in the Aon center on the
25th floor. ThoughtWorks will provide food, as well as alcoholic and
non-alcoholic drinks for the evening. If you have special food needs
please let us know at, xdchicago {at} (

If you are interested in attending, please register at XDChi website
with your full name so we can get your name into the building security
system. It will not be possible to accommodate walk ins due to the
high security at the AON center.
