Please see the links below to the possible projects. During your projects, you will develop a new webpage and move the information to this new page. For more information, please see some of the links below and read over the projects from last year’s class: Design 2014, the theoretical class from last fall, Development, Fall 2014, and from earlier years on the Appropriate Technology Website. You are welcome to build off old projects, and to start new projects yourself.
