“The attendance and enthusiasm of the students was mind-blowing,” says designer Tyler Wisler, a member of the Design Connext steering committee. “When planning for an event that has never been done, we never know what the turnout, outcome or response will be, but we exceeded and surpassed anything that was originally planned for. This gives us legs for bigger and better events in the future for these students.”
