EDventure track 1.0 //  MATTER OF FLOOD DESIGN   Addressing the global issues of environmental resiliency, this 5 session workshop commencing mid September explores multi-scale design potentials for shaping the future of Boulder arising from aspects of the 2013 historic flood. Participants will learn digital 3d modeling tools providing the means to analyze data and explore geometric design processes to create proposals for change of various storm implications– from design of creek banks and evacuation routes to overlapping civic recreational potentialities. Mornings will focus on fieldwork — gathering information to use in afternoons problem solving/design sessions. Afternoons at innovation centers, will utilize design tools (programs and 3-D printers) to prototype solutions. Lunches will be spent with local entrepreneurs who have translated their “what if” ideas to sustainable businesses.

Advances in digital design have come at a blinding pace in the past two decades, and offer powerful means for the artist or designer to model an idea quickly and exactly on his or her computer. Even more recently, small-scale fabrication machinery (‘3d printers’) have become cheaper and more accessible, allowing the designer to “sculpt”  that concept-model in three dimensions quickly and cheaply. We introduce students to this fascinating process by teaching them how to develop their ideas into digital models using intuitive visual programming software, and then printing the resulting model in 3 dimensions and in real time.

This workshop integrates geometry, spatial-thinking, 3d digital modeling and visual programming in a hands-on, creative and collaborative real-world experience. Participants will join the ranks of industrial designers, architects, inventors, and hobbyists everywhere who are realizing their own creative visions in 3-d material reality in a way previously not possible.

” Digifab workshops for high schoolers (and middle schoolers) expose kids to some of the innovative processes that are out in the world.  It exposes them to new ideas and opportunities that can open their eyes to new ideas about academic interests and possibilities for the future.  My son was involved and it has been a great catalyst for cementing his passion for design.
