Happy Holidays from the ADE Team

Wishing you a relaxing and rejuvenating winter break!

Season’s greetings from the ADE Team: Lisa Stavros, Dave Ferrero, Jen Lindbeck, Jerry Nguyen, and Jenny Burns. Whether you’re visiting with friends and family, traveling, or just taking it easy this holiday break, we wish you the best.

Design Thinking for Gift Giving

Students take on the role of an industrial designer to design a gift that other students would want to buy for one of their family members.

MAKE the most of the gift-giving season in your classroom by bringing maker education to your students. Design Thinking for Gift Giving, developed by 2016 ADEs, Beth White, Courtney Bryant and Reggie O’Neill, is a multi-age project that integrates engineering and design, business, art, language arts, and 21st century collaborative skills.
