Photo Recap: Canstruction

IIDA recently collaborated with AIAS and ALSA in an effort to gather can food for the Phoenix Rescue Mission. After the collection period we came together to do a canstruction! Each organization built something out of cans that related to their field specifically.

We gathered a lot of cans, with donation stations set up throughout the design building.

Here is IIDA hard at work. What are we building???

A chair! Thank you Jenny for being our tester 🙂

Here is the IIDA crew who participated in the canstruction. It was a success!


Upcoming Event: Holiday Mentor Mixer

This Friday is the last Mentor Mixer for the fall semester. There will be food provided, but make sure to bring a gift for the white elephant gift exchange (spend about $5). Contact your mentor or mentee to make sure they are attending. See you all there!

Upcoming Event: Innovation Breakfast

Come have coffee and talk design with Dr. Brandt this Thursday. Bring with you your current project if you would like some critiquing!
