Welcome to Design Studio 2021 Showcase
Welcome to the Design Studio 2021 Showcase! While we're disappointed we can't hold the event in-person this year, we're excited you're here to participate virtually. Scroll down to see all the virtual activities, or use the navigation on the right side to quickly jump to what you're looking for.
The Design Studio Showcase is an annual celebration of innovation and creation. Students in Design Studio partner with sponsoring organizations to design and develop real-world, software-based solutions.
Start learning more about this year's projects
Showcase is a lot to take in all at once, which is why we're launching some resources early. There's three main ways to learn about the projects ahead of the live events this Friday afternoon.
Read our annual report for this year. Design Studio produces an annual report giving an overview of the program and projects.
Use the table below to take a deep dive and watch a quick 10 minute video on each project from the students who worked on it.
Look through our project posters for this year. Design Studio teams build a poster for their virtual booth giving a quick overview of their project.
Talk to the students in virtual booths

Once you've learned about the projects, pop into a team's virtual booth to get a live demonstration, ask questions, or just interact with the team. Use the links below to join any team's booth between 2:00pm and 3:25pm Central on Friday, April 30th.
