UIC Design Hosts Osmosis Design Youth Forum

Project Osmosis Design Youth Forum is an all-day showcase of the design disciplines for high school students city-wide. Students select an area of study and engage in a project assignment that provides an introduction to the discipline. Instructors guide the process and review and select work for recognition and award. Students take home tools, materials, and Osmosis certificates of participation. The program is designed to support pre-professional career discovery.

The Osmosis Education and Mentoring Initiative was established to further design education for underserved minority youth. The programs of Project Osmosis foster a generation of confident makers by engaging children and young adults in activities to promote creativity and self-expression.
