about the book


Design thinking and problem-based learning are becoming increasingly popular, but how do we introduce children to this process?


In Zom-BE a Design Thinker, Zip the Zombie takes students through the Design Thinking process using human-centered design. As they read and learn, elementary-age students will learn skills that they will use for life! With rhyme, cute illustrations, interactive augmented reality experiences and digital downloads—such as coloring sheets and an online class that prompts students to create in multiple realities—this book is a great way to introduce design thinking and future technologies to your children at home or in the classroom. Download the Zombie Zip Process Journal, design challenges, and AR apps at below to get your young learners thinking like designers!
