"I am a founder and active member of THINKShed, which has been an incredible opportunity to take projects all the way through the design process, from need-finding to prototyping. Now studying Product Design at Stanford University, I draw upon my THINKShed experiences in my everyday work.  I recently joined the Stanford Tiny House Project, a competitive endeavor which is already benefitting from the design, problem-solving and teamwork skills that I have acquired through THINKShed."

Sarah Chiles

2012 - 2014

"I am studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Southern California '19. I enjoyed working on THINKShed because of the group that I worked with and the necessity for creativity and problem solving. Because of THINKShed I was inspired to pursue a Progressive Degree Program to obtain a Masters in Product Development Engineering. Also, it familiarized me with the process of bringing a product to life from conception to manufacturing. I gained practical information about designing to fulfill certain parameters."

2012 - 2014 

“Working with THINKShed was undoubtedly one of my fondest high school experiences. In designing and prototyping products from scratch and working with a buyer with a budget, our projects challenged me to combined creative and practical thinking. THINKShed exposed me to the world of architecture and design in a way that was incredibly fun and engaging. Largely inspired by my endeavors with THINKShed, I am currently pursuing a major in Engineering Sciences and a Minor in Studio Art at Dartmouth College, '18.”

2014

I am interested in math and science and I am looking to study engineering in college, after my graduation from Aspen High School in 2017. THINKShed gave me hands on experience in the field of engineering. I loved working with actual architects to see the professional life of the fields of subjects I am interested in. THINKShed also gave me the opportunity to preview the fields of marketing, business, and product design. I really enjoyed working with THINKShed because it allowed me to learn outside of the classroom.
