LOOKING BACK:
THE 2017 SUMMER PROGRAM

A Day in the Life:
Designers and Creatives

Designed for students who enjoy creative projects, have diverse talents, and are curious about the future, each day students prototyped a creative career in the tech industry by trying sample projects and joining ask-me-anything sessions with a mentor from that role. They tried 5 careers in 5 days.

Hear what the students had to say:

Students said:

"It was one of the best educational experiences I've ever had."  Leon (Moscow, Russia)
"I learned a lot about how people got their experiences, and what I can do to get the experiences that I want."  Kayla (Menlo Park, CA)
"I learned the importance of trying new things."  Hannah (Chicago, IL)

Students prototyped 5 creative careers in the tech industry:

  • User Interface Designer
  • Growth Marketer
  • Brand Marketer
  • Graphic Designer
  • Product Manager / CEO
