Early Design Education (EDE) at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design (GSD) is a set of five academic programs, including Design Discovery, that introduce design and its potential to change the world to audiences of varied ages and familiarity with design.

All programs are crafted to engage participants with design methods across scales with the assumption that the program is one of the earliest experiences of thinking through making encountered. We invite high school through mid-career professionals to join us! Each program connects the breadth and depth of design talent at Harvard’s GSD to a global public.
