Industrial Design students present their creations to peers

As an introductory project to the course, design teacher Caroline Epp had her industrial design class come up with creative solutions to help polar bears whose habitats are being affected by climate change. After giving the students time to do research and construct their creation, the class partook in a group session of critiquing each other’s creations.
