Led by Facilitator #1

Students compete in a Brainstorm Relay Race, where they work in teams to come up with as many ideas as they can for problems that exist in the world.

Each student then chooses the 1 problem that they feel most passionate about solving and learns how to re-frame that problem as an opportunity.


Definitely keep a timer for this part of the workshop. It’s easy to go over!

When girls are choosing the problem they want to focus on, make sure it’s an issue they care about and understand who it specifically applies to. For example, “cyber-bullying with middle-school girls” or “LGBTQ discrimination in schools” would be powerful and effective problems to work towards.
