From their website:
"The primary purpose of the Industrial Designers Society of America's Design Learning Challenge is to expose young students to design thinking and create an active awareness of the discipline of industrial design as a career option before students leave high school. Regardless of career choice, the potential life skills gained by understanding the design process alone offers value. The 2013 Design Teams are challenged to tackle a problem worth solving within their classrooms, schools, neighborhoods, or communities - the goal, is to create innovative outcomes that have positive impact."
