The Product of Eugene program offers Lane County middle and high school students apprenticeship opportunities focused on graphic, digital, and physical design. Students pair with an instructor or alumni of the UO Department of Product Design, utilizing technology available at the 942 Olive building in downtown Eugene. This 13,000 sq. ft. building features classrooms, studios, a digital design lab, plastics lab (3 types of 3D printers, laser cutter, analog shop tools), and exhibition spaces.
Students work alongside their mentor to understand the profession of product design, explore specific ways to approach design, and begin creating innovative products of their own. In addition to learning a creative practice, students also explore the business aspects of a creative career, bolstering college and career readiness regardless of their chosen field.
