We’re really excited to launch our 2024 Innovation Summer School! It’s now open for applications for year 12 students (age 16-17). The school takes place on Friday 2nd August, 5th-9th August 2024 at the Magnetic studio in London (9 Marshalsea Road SE1 1EP).

Our Innovation Summer School is designed to provide a hands-on learning experience for students interested in exploring the creative world of design and innovation. At Magnetic we’re passionate about developing and inspiring young minds to design better futures for all. We believe inclusion and diversity are central to this. We are hosting the school to inspire and equip students with skills in design and innovation, promoting diverse perspectives that lead to better products and services.

You can expect to be part of a small team of 5-10 students. You’ll work as a team to explore and understand a real-life business problem to develop new propositions and address business challenges in innovative ways. Each day will look different: you’ll hear from inspirational experts, put theory into practice in workshops, learn about design thinking, conduct some research and learn some customer interview techniques. The experience also goes beyond design, teaching essential skills like empathy, leadership, creative thinking, collaboration, and communication.

We’re looking for a self-starting, creative thinker curious about the world of design and innovation. If that’s you, apply now!

Applications close on 17th July 2024. Spaces are limited, all applicants will hear from us by 19th July.

This opportunity also provides a preview of our Jumpstarter programme for anyone considering a future career at Magnetic. More details can be found here.

* This is a really exciting work experience opportunity. We will help to cover costs towards attending, including lunch and up to £20 per day for travel.
