NDSU’s interior design students participated in Northern Cass Middle School’s STEM Day in February. The group provided sessions about interior design as middle school students created a design solution for a new commons space for their school.
“We assisted the students in understanding construction documents and collaborated with them on their ideas for the space, and how they could incorporate a cool space that was also going to be implemented for learning,” said Myranda Ingram, a junior in the interior design program.
The middle school students developed a computer-aided drafting drawing for their team’s design solution, along with a model. They will present the plan to the Northern Cass school board in April.
“Watching them bring ideas to the table and finding a fun way to incorporate them was the best part,” said Ingram. “I think it was important for the students to understand what interior design actually is, and all aspects that make up our major, such as space planning and how the space would be used.”
