New High School. Same Determined Mission.

iDo is taking its 10 years of experience in teaching creativity and engaging underserved students to an even bigger population. In the Fall of 2014, iDo will once again partner with teacher Tera Freedman at San Francisco's Mission High School. With over a thousand students and dozens of after-school programs, Mission High is the ideal environment to teach creativity and foster curiosity. On tap for these students will be a curriculum developed and prototyped in conjunction with the team in iDo Korea. Along with their Korean counterparts, Mission High students will exercise their creative ability during a 7-week lamp project where they will ideate, prototype, build, and learn what it takes to make a fully functioning lamp. These students will participant in iDo's first ever cross-continent collaboration project and will show off their results at the end of the project. It's going to be a wild and exciting experience.

Our Passion

The Industrial Design Outreach Project (iDo) promotes the field of industrial design and uses its methodologies to enhance the education of both high school and university students. Through hands-on interdisciplinary design projects, iDo provides high school students with experiences that foster curiosity, promote creativity, and build self-confidence.

By developing and delivering design curriculum to high school students, university students gain experiences that promote teamwork; enhance communication, organization, and improve presentation skills; and provide a forum for participants to give back to their community.

What's Your Passion?

When all is said and done, iDo is driven by the generosity of foundations, industry, and individual donors such as yourselves. We speak for all of those who have graced us with their presence when we say—thank you.
