Prof Dheeraj Sanghi, Vice Chancellor, JK Lakshmipat University said“There are a lot of exciting workshops on Design Thinking, Critical Thinking, Creativity, Material Exploration, Photography and so on. We have curated this camp to help school students make a hands-on connection with Design and develop a perspective that will help them decide whether they want to be designers, engineers, social scientists or anything else of their choosing. It’s going to be transformative and engaging. At JK Lakshmipat University, we are passionate about building a high quality institution that enables students to embark on a journey of transformation. This camp is a unique opportunity for the students to interact with the industry leaders of design and seek guidance from them and it would act as a window into the world of design.
