See the final results of the Eastman Naia Design Challenge
The Eastman Naia Design Challenge with O’More college may be over but we are loving the final results and thought you would love to see them too!
Students reflect on their experience in the Eastman Naia™ Challenge
Now that the Eastman Naia challenge has concluded, the students look back at their design process and discuss with what role Naia had in shaping their design. They also walk us through what they would have changed now that they understand the material better than when they first started.
