Here is an example of design and engineering students teaming up together to solve world’s problem, a few at a time. The entire project as a whole is overwhelmingly impressive, but there are some key points that I want to discuss with my students in class:
- The social responsibilities that a designer have to the community and the world that he/she is living in
- The power of collaborating with other individuals who shares ambition and passion
- The courage to do something good despite the possibilities of failure
It’s always good to share the news with the young creative professionals in your class as a warm up exercise to get them start thinking about what they are capable of.
