Join DesignPrep as we meet professional designers, learn about their careers and projects, and get hands-on by making our own designs.

How do designers construct the buildings, parks, and rooms we use every day? Meet architects and interior designers, and landscape designers and investigate their role in making the spaces that surround us, then play designer and design a creative space of your own!
