PBL Seniors Taking College-Level Design Essentials Course

pbl seniors taking design courses thru TJUPBL12 students are engaged in a college-level design essentials course, co-taught by CHS faculty and professors from Thomas Jefferson University’s (TJU) Kanbar College of Design, Engineering & Commerce in Philadelphia. This past week, students learned from Rob Fleming, the TJU Salaman Family Chair in Sustainable Design and Professor of Sustainable Design and Integrated Design, and dug deep into the concepts of sustainability, resilience and regenerative design. Professor Fleming will return to provide feedback and support as students develop projects for the Biomimicry Youth Design Challenge, an international competition that asks the question, "what would nature do?" when designing solutions for the many challenges the global community faces.
