About the Event

The Design Collision Competition is a design competition that will take place from March 23- 25 at Grenfell Campus. The competition will bring together faculty, staff and students from any discipline, program or school.

Working in teams, participants will compete in a design challenge to design a prototype. Teams will have access to the Grenfell Campus fine arts Fab Shop/computer labs/3D printers/other technology and materials. The prototypes will be judged with prizes for the winning team.



The Design Collision Competition weekend is designed to bring people together from various disciplines to learn about design thinking and how it fits within our respective disciplines.

Join us for a fun weekend of design thinking!

Think. Create. Innovate.
