INFORMATION ABOUT THE FALL 2002 DESIGN CHALLENGE TEAMS

The Fall 2002 TSGC Design Challenge is considered the "test bed" of the present-day program. Three teams from three Texas institutions developed and brought their own design topics to TSGC to help give the program its start.

Meet the Fall 2002 Design Challenge Teams and read a profile of each design project.
