Cooper-Hewitt is hosting a three-session workshop for graphic design badge identity. The workshop is intended to educate teens on the badge infrastructure and how it will play a role in their informal skill-building experiences. Teens will have the opportunity to design badge pathways and identities which will become part of the platform developed for Cooper-Hewitt.

Lead designers will be on hand to provide design expertise and guidance as teens develop their own badge identities, as well as Learning Times representatives. Participating designers include;
