WE Build is a one-day program where participants complete a design and build project in a fun, creative, and hands-on way. Participant experience includes:  mentoring by RIT engineer students, exploring RIT campus, and taking home a personalized design project. The miniature dog house design project is personalized based on provided criteria and participant choices.
