This paper builds on topics presented by several established designers and emphasizes the importance of starting with primary and secondary education before the landscape of design can be changed in the future. One of the biggest challenges in our education system today revolves around the time to restructure the curriculum and provide additional funding for faculty to develop this curriculum. But, with emerging careers and increasing demand of designers within various fields of work, we need to optimize pilot education programs to better prepare students for opportunities and increase diversity through exposure with new technology today. Similar challenges in constructing new methods to our education align with the formation of the Bauhaus art school, that opened in the early 1900s. Modernizing styles of teaching, inclusivity between cultures and accessibility to design software, all provide additional ways to learn and collaborate.
