Our course will provide you with the opportunity to understand and apply the design process, respond to, and examine ways to change the world around us. This course offers students skills and values that they can apply to a range of learning challenges and career opportunities. We are surrounded by design. Design is used to solve problems and answer question in every aspect of the environment created by humanity. Design is seen in everything from the way we plant crops, design furniture, construct displays/signs, build cars and design homes, bridges, and roads.
