On June 8, 2012, an open house and final gallery show of 18 student projects were hosted at NextFab on Market Street in Philadelphia. Drexel community, students, parents, attended to review the students' final projects.
Students provide short descriptions of current progress on their design projects. In order to address a specific Design Trajectory (shown below), students have been asked to consider designing (1) an artifact and (2) a system/process related to that artifact.
DESIGN RESEARCH TRAJECTORIES
After a month of user, market, and context research, students have synthesized a collective pool of research into a handful of design trajectories. Through strategic use of their research, each trajectory presentation is one student group's argument towards supporting a unique design opportunity.

Second-year undergraduate design students in Drexel University's Product Design Program have been challenged to use design research and product design to tackle real-life problems in OPENING AUDIO. Click on the profiles below to access each student's process blog.
