In partnership with the Calgary Board of Education, MindFuel's CTF Accelerator gives students the chance to explore their interests and passions through hands-on experiences, providing them with opportunities to solve real-world challenges by using iterative problem solving and rapid prototyping. We match classes with community mentors who provide students with feedback and share insights about future career possibilities. This program is open to all schools within the Calgary area.
“I was surprised at the rapid prototyping techniques. We are often taught that the final product is the most important, and oftentimes I'll focus on the final product rather than prototypes. However, through rapid prototyping I learned how easy and helpful prototyping can be.”
“This program has surprisingly showed me different ways to approach not only design thinking problems, but also being more creative in answering questions in my daily life.”
“The fact that rapid prototyping can be so cheap and uses items that you see in everyday life was very eye opening to me. I always thought that prototypes were just smaller versions of a product, but they are much more important than I thought.”
