iDesign is a
free, 2-week program for high school students interested in technology.
This will be a hands-on course where students design, build, play,
travel, take apart, and learn – all while having fun and learning
how engineers help society.
We have 2 programs
in iDesign. The original iDesign-Engineering (or iDesign-E) program
based at City College of San Francisco, and iDesign-Manufacturing
(or iDesign-M) based at Laney College in Oakland. (For this year,
we are limiting enrollment to San Francisco students for iDesign-E,
and Oakland area students for iDesign-M.)
is sponsored by the City College of San Francisco, California
Center for Applied Competitive Technology, and Laney College,
with major funding from the Bechtel Foundation, Lee Family Foundation,
If you are a
high school student, and have an interest in technology, or think
you might, this is a program for you. We will spend time in the
lab, classroom, and traveling to companies and colleges in the Bay
Area. We will also have guest speakers from industry talk about
technology, engineering and manufacturing.
