STEAM Runway Shows
MakeFashion Edu STEAM Runway Shows are fashion tech events showcasing young designers’ integration of STEAM skills into wearables on a flat fashion runway.
San Marcos is the home of High Tech Middle, a progressive “Project Based Learning” school that has had worldwide influence on schools seeking to bring their students’ learning outside of the confines of a classroom into the real world. MakeFashion Edu experienced its first round of projects that received inputs from Humanities, Science, and Design classes! This collaboration between teachers and cross-disciplinary experience for students resulted in projects with deep advocacy and social purposes.
Tucson is the home of several international school teachers that helped form the initial show in Shenzhen, China. They brought the program back to the US, and established MakeFashion Edu’s presence in America. The students in Tucson have not had extensive access to new technologies, so this program has brought a lot of change to the community, including surrounding universities with Fashion programs.
