Design Jam introduces students to the shared concepts, principles and products of Design Technology at a fundamental level. The two-week Design Jam focuses on building confidence, hands on experiences, and is goal oriented. We intend to spark the students' interest in design and technology while offering a wide range of career outcomes. It develops the soft skills of communication, collaborative problem solving and creativity through simple technology-based design activities. Students who successfully complete the Design Jam are guaranteed access into the Fall 2013 semester.
