Brainstorming At the beginning of the Community Bench Project students at Thurgood Marshall Academic High School collaborated as both individuals and in small groups. Further, they also discussed the meaning of community within the classroom as individuals, and as a larger entity.

The iDo Mission

The mission of the Industrial Design Outreach Project (iDo) is to promote the field of industrial design and use 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 presentation skills; and provide a forum for participants to give back to their community.
