Founding Story

In our environmental design class at A&M we are required to come up with new and innovative ideas. As fun as the class is our group has been successful in coming up with ideas to shape the future.


We have a wide range of majors from engineering to history to biomedical science and many different types of thinkers. We would keep the six people in our group throughout the development of this project and work together to accomplish our goals.
