PBSLearningMedia (a curriculum portal for teachers) created a series of interactive videos designed to help students learn how to think and act like innovators. It is designed for 4th through 12th grade students, to be completed after watching the Extreme By Design documentary.
Learning Episode 1 ("Being an Innovator") introduces students to the design thinking approach. Scenes from the documentary are used to illustrate concepts, and a protagonist acts as a guide, providing instruction and explanations to the students.
