Our methodology

The innovation studio lab model 


Borrowing from the architectural studio model and research on the creative learning process, the studio innovation lab is a learning methodology in which a young person develops his or her ideas with guidance and coaching from a library of experts in the field.

Every studio innovation lab is built around a real-world theme (e.g. climate change, migration) and focuses on a set of skills the learner can deploy for the future (e.g. visual design and coding).  

Youths come together to develop their ideas, build prototypes and pitch their projects. In the process, they learn to innovate at the intersection of design and technology, and develop a digital portfolio of skills for the future. 

At BOLD@Work, we:  

IMAGINE: Explore our interests and discover our passions

CREATE: Bring vision to reality through making and trial and error

SHARE: Grow with a community of like-minded peers and coaches

REFLECT: Present our ideas and thought process; learn through feedback and iteration





 Tony Wagner, Innovation Education Fellow at the Technology & Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard, interviewed a wide range of young innovators at the top of their fields, to uncover their journey to becoming the people they are. The common thread: Play, Passion and Purpose.

Taking a leaf from this approach, our programmes are designed to take you from play, passion to purpose. Begin your journey today!  



Play is not just all fun and laughter, but a spirit of experimentation and discovery. Not sure where your passion lies? Start somewhere, try something! 

Come for one of our "Learn By Making" workshops: Get your hands moving and your mind churning! 



Want to explore some of the fields and build some skills? 

Sign up for our foundational skills workshops or get trained in the habits of mind and discipline of a specific domain through one of our career studios.



Practice your skills in real-world projects through apprenticeships with our studio masters.  



How would you know you can be good at something unless you have tried it?
