This year, 40 campers attended the Design Discovery summer workshop. The seven counselors, all upper-level students chosen by faculty to lead the camp, are (back row) Caitlin Wong; Jacob Owens; Danielle Glass, student co-director; Taylor Keefer; Chance Stokes; Drew Ridinger and Melissa Sessum, student director.

STARKVILLE – Design Discovery, an eight-day summer workshop, is currently underway at Mississippi State University.

The camp, which kicked off June 8 and continues through June 15, is intended to answer many of the questions about architecture and interior design as a field of study and as a profession.

The workshop is open to high school students, age 16 and up, and incoming college freshman interested in the field of architecture or other related design fields.

The major goal of the workshop is to simulate the information, skill and the intensity required for a design education.

The camp’s director, Justin Taylor, serves in an advisor capacity, but the camp is run entirely by a student director and 7 instructors, who are “hand-picked” upper-level architecture students.

Design discovery kicked off with registration for all 40 campers, dorm check-in and a dinner for campers and their parents. » Read the rest of this entry «
