In Product Design: Make Your Own Illuminated Object, students engage in a hands-on process in order to learn how to design shapes in 2D in order to translate their designs into visually stunning 3-dimensional objects. In addition to this, students will also learn basics related to electricity and electronics by assembling their own portable LED lamp. This lamp will then be enclosed within the unique object that the students have designed and produced, resulting in an amazing, professional-looking illuminated object that students can take home. Through this process, participants will learn to use industry-standard vector-editing software such as Adobe Illustrator to create products that will then be cut using a plotter. Students will learn about design, geometry, production, CNC machines, electricity, and unique approaches to product design and creation while engaging in an innovative project-based process as they make their own contemporary illuminated objects.
