Industrial Design Outreach International
iDo has partnered with two committed professors at Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea to create iDo Korea, a monumental achievement for the program. Dr. Subin Im and Dr. Sung Joo BaeThese will be the co-directors of iDo Korea. This shared program will be developed and delivered simultaneously in San Francisco and Seoul during 2014. SF State university students will work with Yonsei University students to develop the program, and the San Francisco high school students will collaborate with the Seoul high school students during the delivery of the program. It is our hope that this will be a lasting partnership, eventually expanding to other select countries.
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.

We need the help of passionate San Francisco State University students interested in teaching, mentoring and giving back to their community. We also offer product and graphic design experiences that lead to professional portfolio development. Additionally, mentors can receive class credit through DAI 575.
