Students, educators attend design camp

student at interior design summer camp at UNIHigh school students and educators experienced interior design first hand during the University of Northern Iowa's Interior Design summer camp held June 14-18, on UNI's campus.

The camp was taught by UNI interior design professors Gowri Betrabet Gulwadi and Jillissa Moorman.  The camp featured two sessions -- one for high school students and one for high school educators.

According to Gulwadi, the goal of the camp was to have high school students learn about the interior design profession and the promising future of the interior design field.

"It is indeed a field that can enable us to make a difference in people's lives through well-designed interiors that contribute to the health, safety and welfare of the people in it," Gulwadi said.

Students and educators attending the camp received hands-on experience by creating and presenting their own original projects.

"They learn about the profession and concepts in interior design," Gulwadi said. "They walk away with a new understanding of the profession and its potential."
