PENSOLE HIGH SCHOOL (PHS) is a multi-discipline pre-college design program organized by Pensole Academy for high school students. PHS informs students about the study of design and raises awareness of the impact of design on all aspects of our everyday lives. The design thinking skills and creative experience gained can empower students on their path toward becoming innovative problem solvers and prepare them to tackle the challenges of the future. PHS consists of workshops, social media challenges, and competitions. All PHS programs are open to rising 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th-grade students.
WORKSHOPS | In-person: 1- day workshops will be popping up across the continental U.S., in the near future.
