Read a recap of the IBM Design Sprint with insights from the winning team about UX Design and BrainStation's bootcamp experience.
Despite the COVID-19 outbreak, hundreds of BrainStation students recently graduated with Diplomas in UX Design, Web Development, and Data Science. We couldn’t be prouder of their achievements and the way they took everything in stride.
BrainStation’s full-time Diploma programs culminate with students producing an individual portfolio piece for their final Capstone project.
Here are some of our favorite UX Design projects from Winter 2020. You can also see all of our graduate’s projects on our hiring page.

Social Eyes helps low-income families with children find affordable social activities. Scott was inspired by his own experience, as growing up he didn’t always have access to high-cost activities.
