— April 2017
Five RHS Drafting students attended the DESIGN BLITZ event at Red Hat on March 22. The students collaborated in groups with other WCPSS high school students. Each group was led by at least one industry professional from various architectural and design firms. The student groups worked with those professionals to problem-solve, create, complete, and review prototypes. Students were later divided up according to their design interests to learn portfolio development, understand marketing, or participate in industry panel discussions.
Ronin Gomez was in the group whose “wearable tech” product won, earning each of the students in that group a laptop.
