What is the future of stuff and why does it matter to Portland? From May 4 – 19, 2014 this facilitated design challenge will have students from across the city researching, designing, and testing the viability and social impact of business opportunities they identify for making and manufacturing. It also presents a unique opportunity for executives, school administrators, designers, teachers, and community based organizations to learn with and from the Breaker team as they explore the intersection of challenge-based learning, design-driven innovation, and social entrepreneurship.

It will build cross-sector bridges between collaborating organizations and foster innovation across Portland’s teaching and learning ecosystem. Please join us as a student or as a professional development participant.
