Fashion FUNdamentals is open to middle school students entering 6th, 7th, and 8th grades in fall 2021. The program was developed by faculty in Design and Merchandising at Colorado State University. This program represents an innovative, technology-rich learning experience comprising technical and social programming. Technical programming will engage young people in hands-on application of science, technology, engineering, and math concepts to develop solutions to real-world problems in the global fashion industry. Social programming will address topics of concern among adolescents, and thus, will have the potential to positively influence their self-esteem as well as their academic performance.
