About this event

HELP PLAY TEST TOY DESIGNS
Toy Product Design is a hands-on project-based class where students work in small interdisciplinary teams to design and prototype their own product concepts using idea generation, sketching, CAD modeling and basic electronics.  The prototypes work and look like real products. Good design relies on feedback from end users so we play test product ideas and use conversational feedback from kids and parents to select and redesign ideas.

Your family is invited to play test our designs.  Advanced registration is required for each event. Adults must have a child of any age with them to attend.
