On May 3, Terry Wiley's fifth-grade students spent a day on the Minneapolis campus where they engaged in a design exercise with Abi Asojo (Interior Design) by creating a 3D room on the computer; spoke with Tex Ostvig, the coordinator for Kids on Campus, about the importance of college and their role as citizens and problem-solvers of the future; watched the Daily Planet's video episode about the Toy Product Design course and imagined themselves as toy designers of the future; and took front row seats on the Northrop Mall during Signmark's Silent Shout concert where they learned how to rap using American Sign Language. A new group of fifth-graders from Bruce Vento will partner with the College next year.
