This spring, the Multi Disciplinary Design studios are pursuing projects on the topic of AID from a variety of perspectives. Pre-majors and design minors in the beginning design studio will address amplification of simple daily activities, to lift, to comfort or to sort. In three separate sections of our Capstone studio, students are working on the design and development of aid devices and kits for water rescue, indoor and outdoor recreational climbing, and snow sports including backcountry conditions. In the design major, our first year students are working with AirMed designing solutions for helicopter rescue. Design seniors are developing their own thesis projects that deal with AID in some regard.
