Hone your design skills
Interested in learning and applying design skills? Join some of the labs and clubs at Dartmouth to learn and practice design thinking, UI/UX design, web design, visual design, game design, and product design.
UI/UX Design; App and Web Development
The Dartmouth Applied Learning & Innovation (DALI) Lab is a research and development lab in the Computer Science Department at Dartmouth College. We pair Students (developers and designers) with partners (outside startups and community members). The students work together outside of the classroom, building prototypes while learning technical and creative skills.
Tiltfactor invents engaging games and novel forms of play to inspire new ways of thinking about important social issues. Founded and directed by leading innovator Dr. Mary Flanagan, Tiltfactor is an award-winning design studio and research laboratory that takes on critical problems at a national and global scale.
