FROM THE TEACHER

What does it look like to put all of the skills you’ve been acquiring in school into action in order to impact the world for Christ? You cannot do it alone. God wants us to learn how to operate as a team – His body.

If you would like the opportunity to work with a team of students to build important real-world skills as well as learn how the design process can help us create actual tools to impact the world for Christ, then this is the class for you.

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
