Design an Irresistible Future
In settling another planet, humans discover a host of challenges, much like those faced on Earth. The Mayor of City X has established an elite engineering team called the Irresistible Futures Agency, charged with tackling major challenges like:
Energy
Environment
Transportation
Security
Food
Safety
Health

Problem Solving, Design Thinking, and Engineering
As an Irresistible Futures engineer, kids (and adults!) come up with their own unique solutions to big problems. They use design thinking, systems thinking, and other problem-solving activities that are part of being a good engineer for the future. Activities help them:
Explore the impact of global challenges
Make complex issues simple and understandable
Imagine a better future
Create solutions to the challenges they care most about
Share their best ideas with the world

Science-Fact and Real-World Case Studies
Along the way, readers learn about real-world innovators and technologies that are making this future possible, from inventors building megastructures in space to companies powering cities with baby poop.

Diversity and Inclusion
In each Chapter, kids design a solution for citizens of City X, who share perspectives on each challenge. The 35 citizens represent a diversity of culture, age, gender, background, and ability, so every reader can see themselves in the story and expand their perspective at the same time.

Without limits, what can kids create?

About the Series:

Design thinking—creative problem solving—will be crucial to resolving the global challenges in business, politics, and the environment facing the next generation. Each book in the Design Genius Jr. series teaches kids this important skill through fun, hands-on projects in a single area of design that challenge them to identify problems, explore possibilities, test ideas, and then come up with original solutions.
