Participants of all ages and walks of life will experience techniques of design and arts through hands-on activities using simple tools and sustainable, recyclable, reused materials (provided by the organizing team). The participants will be divided into teams; each team will be challenged to devise a way to prevent an egg from breaking when dropped from a height of 12 feet off the ground! Teams will draw, plan, and build prototypes, working collaboratively under the guidance of design professors from SFSU. The moment of truth – the egg drop! – will be recorded and shared with participants. Additionally, people attending the workshop will take a half-hour guided tour of the School of Design facilities, visiting shops, classrooms, asking questions, and seeing students’ works exhibited in the hallways and galleries.
Workshop Location: Fine Arts Building Terrace (meeting point at the ramp between the Fine Arts and the Cesar Chavez buildings)
