FUTURES was designed to motivate interest in mathematics by showing students that math is the language of the future–and a passport to creative and rewarding jobs in fields ranging from fashion and skateboard design to architecture and space exploration.
Industrial Design – Telephones, refrigerators, watches, chairs-almost everything we use every day was conceived by industrial designers. At Eastman Kodak Company and JBL/Harman Speaker Manufacturing, designers show viewers what goes into coming up with a good prototype. Ralf Hotchkis’ wheelchair designs have set a new world standard. And in scenes from the movie, “Blade Runner,” we see the futuristic products conceived by Mr. Escalante’s classroom guest, Syd Mead.
