Design at Advent: Remote Summer Program

Payment Deadline 05/27/2020

Designers will begin each session by identifying a problem, evaluating the properties of materials and engaging in the design process. Each day, the designers will participate in synchronous lessons to define and drive their guided independent building times. At the end of each daily session, the designers will come together to share their solutions and give feedback to their fellow designers. On the last day of each session, the designers will share their creations and prototypes with friends and family in a Virtual Design Expo.
