Designerds! was a short pilot I developed and hosted with Professor David Wallace in 2005. The pilot featured two interdisciplinary design teams competing to develop a new form of musical instrument. Designerds! is intended to be a tool used to teach the product design process and basic engineering skills to high school students in an entertaining manner.
