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.
