The Spring 2010 Design Revolution Road Show is a traveling exhibition and lecture series bringing “product design that empowers” to 25 U.S. high schools and universities. The road show features a biodiesel-powered truck and Airstream trailer exhibition of 40 humanitarian design solutions, sponsored by Project H Design.  The products will be on view at every stop for visitors to experience, use, and touch; each is a smart design solution to one of eight issues: Water, Well-Being, Energy, Education, Play, Food, Mobility, Enterprise.

  1. It would be really nice if some of these traveling shows would come to the SouthEast. Being in a small rural school system isolates us from many outreach programs.
