SHIFT is an outdoor design camp for the maker in all of us. SHIFT aims to reframe the routine of our daily lives as designers and reignite the playful nature of the design community. Using physically and mentally challenging activities, students and professionals will be brought together in a nontraditional way to break the boundaries in networking and create long-lasting relationships.
Each year IDSA encourages, rewards and celebrates excellence in industrial design education with the Student Merit Awards.
The 2013 Student Merit Awards, sponsored by Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corp., have officially begun! To kick off the awards process, IDSA has contacted all student chapter advisors, who will assist student chapter leaders in getting their competitions under way. Resources for participating and judging will be provided.
In trying to encourage, reward and celebrate excellence in industrial design education, IDSA student chapters nominate their best and brightest for the Student Chapter Merit Award Competition. Each student chapter holds a competition, juried by professional designers, to select one winner who will represent their school at their District Conference. The winner from each school presents at their District Conference, and a jury of professional designers select the National Student Merit Award winner for each district.
