About this event

In the words of Apple Inc. founder, Steve Jobs, “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” This event will challenge our student designers to construct beautiful, comfortable, and functional furniture out of common, everyday household items that many people would not consider to be ideal furniture-making materials. Students will be introduced to the 3D CAD program Tinkercad to create and model their designs. They will learn that with the smart application of key physics principles (i.e. weight distribution and center of mass/stability) as well as following the Engineering Design Process, amazing designs can result.
