Formation was pleased to participate in “Designing the World Around You” an Industrial Design summer camp for aspiring designers at Georgia Tech. Faculty from Georgia Tech in conjunction with The Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics and Computing, CEISMC (pronounced “seismic”), hosted a large group of middle school students for a week long Industrial Design camp.
Energetically lead by GT design instructor Raja Schaar, young designers worked in teams to explore how and why everyday objects are made. From there they carried out their own hands-on design projects culminating in group presentations.
Formation participated by presenting a range of completed projects to illustrate the diverse array of products and industries that benefit from Industrial Design. Although the design process is relatively consistent the range of potential design careers is almost limitless.
With the exception of an aggressive line of questioning from a middle-school student regarding ‘exactly how much money designers make”, we managed to make it through our presentation unscathed. Hopefully, we had a positive influence on the next generation Georgia Tech Industrial Designers.
