STEAM STUDIO works with organizations and professional clients to create real world challenges where youth use a variety of design and production tools to create artifacts. After learning essential digital skills to make digital artifacts, youth work for one week alongside content mentors to respond to a challenge brief and produce a product. STEAM STUDIO participants also earn fashion focused digital badges in design, photography, collaboration, and project completion.
Youth have an opportunity to publicly showcase their creations at a Trunk Show with select designers winning future opportunities to reproduce or display work. In Fall of 2014, participating designers were able to showcase their designs as a part of Chicago Fashion Week at the Style Bias: Street Style event.
