Special Topics in Design Thinking: Design Thinking for AI in Chemistry

Special Topics in Design Thinking:
Design Thinking for AI in Chemistry

During this 8-week course, students will work in teams to explore the introduction of AI to the field of chemistry, and will explore this question: How might we introduce the use of AI in chemistry, to chemists and chemistry novices, in a way that is inspiring, accessible, and applicable? Uncovering the answer to this question will support the development of methods of introduction that will be prototyped, tested, and refined through the Molecule Maker Lab Institute's NSF-funded work. 

This course also provides a hands-on introduction to the fundamentals of design thinking and human-centered design. Students will experience the human-centered design approach while working collaboratively with teammates. During this work, teams will learn methods of performing initial research, conducting interviews, creating journey maps and wireframes, brainstorming, and proposing ideas, and can expect to also learn, implement, and develop storytelling skills. Please contact SCD with any questions.
