Design Terminal is a Hungarian state institution responsible for developing the creative industries. Its mission is to encourage young people engaged in creative industries to flourish in Hungary, and focuses the attention of Hungarian and international investors on the business opportunities offered by our talented professionals. Within our programmes we launch initiatives as an independent, professional partner to support the implementation of high-quality events, and we offer a location for a variety of creative industry events.

The City X Project is an international education workshop for 8–10 year-old students that teaches creative problem solving using 3D technologies and the design process. Framed in a story about humans settling a new planet, the workshop uses Stanford’s Design Process along with 3D modeling and printing technologies to empower kids to create inventions that solve major social issues. We aspire to inspire the next generation of changemakers with hands-on education technologies. The City X Project workshops are part of the development of an academic curriculum and toolkit to be released in 2014.
