Challenge 2012 Winners

Challenge Overview

The primary purpose of the IDSA Design Learning Challenge 2012 was to expose young students to design thinking and create an active awareness of the discipline of industrial design and the design process.

Embracing a Learn.Think.Do approach, each Design Learning Challenge 2012 Team focused on one of the three submission categories: Design Day Event, Targeted Design Project or Industrial Design Awareness Campaign. 

The 2012 Submission Guidelines provided a systematic, yet flexibleaction research framework for students to follow as they conducted, analyzed, represented, and submitted their final design learning study report. Each team told their contextual story, with content supported by a beginning, middle, and end.
