STEAM110: Home School Product Design Immersion

10 Week Product Design Immersion Program (Fall 2014)





This program is a 10 week course that will meet once a week for two hour sessions. The focus of this program is to develop skills used by industrial designers to take a product through the various stages of development. The program starts with using sketches as a tool for communicating your ideas to others, and then turning sketches into vectors using Adobe Illustrator. The students will then be issued a product category and design constraints, just like industrial designers would get from a client. After concepting and exploring different solutions, we will hone in on a idea and refine it for prototyping. Using our facility’s tools, students will build a model that will demonstrate their solutions and allow them to interact with their design to test how successfully their design works in the real world.
