The Camelback High School marketing department was awarded a $28,500 Grant to participate in the ASU/Verizon Innovation through Design Thinking Program over the next two years.

Marketing teachers Maria Abrams, Julia Bourdo and Arie Edwards will benefit from the program in multiple ways as iDT Fellows.

They will attend an iDT Institute where they will be introduced to innovation and applied community-based project curriculum; will participate in a virtual training program to learn techniques for teaching innovation,  integrate applied community-based projects into iDT Fellows’ classrooms in the Spring, and train colleagues in their schools on innovation teaching methods in the second year.

The grant includes mobile devices and data plans to help implement the program. Camelback is one of four schools that were awarded the grant.
