MEET THE Spring 2011 TEAMS

Please Welcome the Spring 2011 Design Challenge Teams!

The Design Challenge Program launches into its eighteenth semester with seven teams returning to complete projects begun during Fall 2010; and three incoming teams beginning work on all new design project topics.

I am very pleased to introduce them to you below!
