Build-Its from IDDS Climate Change Adaptation

  • Build-It

This presentation features all of the Build-Its that were included as part of the curriculum at IDDS Climate Change. Participants created constructs using these designs, many of which were originally made by C-Innova innovators.  Creating these products helped attendants learn and practice basic design and construction skills that will help them with many of the technical components of working on their own innovation projects.
