During this theme, campers will engage in a variety of activities where they explore many of the fundamental concepts dealing with urban infrastructure—what it is, what the major elements of the various urban infrastructure systems are, how each works, and how we as users and designers interact with the different infrastructures. Campers will be learning and performing projects on the infrastructures of transportation and communication. Under transportation, they will explore the specific topics of mapping a neighborhood, public transportation, freight, and designing a city. Under communication, they will explore modeling a cellular network, making a telephone tube, transmitting radio waves, and communicating with flashlights. After we cover the basic concepts, we will shift our minds and projects to attempting to build some of the infrastructures in a space—weightless—environment. Week 3 Field Trip: Friday, July 15.
