Student-designed Airstream trailer to visit Summit
Reynoldsburg students will get to see how real-world learning can result in real-world solutions this week when the Columbus College of Art and Design shows off the Airstream Pursuit, a mobile office/living space that two Reynoldsburg High School interns helped to design. The finished product, now in commercial production by Airstream, will visit Reynoldsburg's Summit Campus on Wednesday.

2014 graduates Sebastian Brosius and Tommy Coley assisted students in CCAD's MindMarket program to design a new product for Airstream that appealed to a younger audience. Brosius and Coley completed the internship as part of their engineering design pathway at the eSTEM Academy.

The interns arrived at CCAD with knowledge and skills they had gained by working in the Battelle FabLab at their school. At the FabLab, they learned to use professional-grade design software as well as standard equipment for advanced manufacturing.

The student team built a prototype of their design inside an Airstream shell to present to company executives in May. The company decided to put the design into production, and the production model was unveiled to a national audience at an industry conference over the summer.

To celebrate the partnership, CCAD has taken the prototype on tour. They have visited schools in Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Chicago and Cincinnati and now are returning to their own backyard in Central Ohio.
