Deason Innovation Gym Immersive Design Challenge, May 2017

In May 2017, a group of students took on the challenge of redesigning and improving the SMU MakerTruck, a mobile makerspace filled with high tech and low tech tools and materials. Every year, the Deason Innovation Gym (the DIG) hosts an Immersive Design Challenge (IDC) where students collaborate on a 5-7 day challenge, building both technical and “soft” skills while developing an innovative solution to a real world problem. This year, the challenge was to redesign the truck for the Lyle School of Engineering to use in the mission to promote Maker-based education.
