Imagine your own BAND BRAND! You are the manager of a band and also the Drummer, and the CFO... and the chauffeur.... 

You and your band are starting to get attention but you recognize that your image needs to be a little more unified, so people recognize you and want to buy your swag. 

Develop several of the following: 

  1. Create some music in a music application!
  2. Design your band logo
  3. Use Access to take inventory of your equipment
  4. Design concert posters, tickets, t-shirts, etc. to sell to your fans!
  5. Build a website!
  6. Develop a social media strategy!
  7. Use a 3D application to design your stage!
  8. Design costumes for your band!
  9. ...? What else? 

Rock on!

Design a Learning Space

Educational spaces are challenged by: 

  1. Different students and interests
  2. Budget limitations
  3. Advances in technology and the challenges of keeping pace
  4. Multiple teachers, student ages, and schedules in conflict or competition for space

How would you design a building that would allow a very diverse group of people to share a space effectively? What kinds of activities do you see happening in this space? Will the space be more flexible or more "built in"? 

Use 3D design software to envision an educational space (Library / Computer Lab / Maker Space?) and use Excel to track any equipment and prices that would need to be considered as part of the budget.
