GIANT hosts REACT Prototyping Workshop

Natalie Gogotsi, Brielle Weiner, and Madison Brod brainstorming a tent design.

The 2017 REACT cohort at GIANT was challenged with a workshop that started with a quick overview of SheterBox‘s disaster relief mission to deploy emergency tents.  Students moved into a fast-and-furious three days of hands-on tent prototyping that required teamwork, creativity and their diversity of technical expertise.  Check out one of the mid-workshop tweets from their CEA-based lead, Olivier Menard.
