3DuxDesign Makes Fast Company’s 2021 Awards for Re-Imagining STEM Education

Celebrating the 10th annual Innovation by Design Awards, the 2021 honorees include industry-leading STEM education design programs like MIT Media Lab, Carnegie Melon, IIT,  and ... 3DuxDesign.

FAIRFIELD, CT (September 28, 2021) -- 3DuxDesign, a STEM and project-based learning company, was recognized in Fast Company’s Innovation by Design Awards 2021 as an honorable mention for its architectural modeling system designed for K-8 students and classrooms.

The 10th anniversary of the awards, which can be found in the October 2021 issue of Fast Company, recognizes people, teams, and companies that transform society through design. One of the most sought-after awards in the industry, Innovation by Design is the only competition to honor creative work at the intersection of design, business, and innovation, recognizing the people that have steadily advanced design to the forefront of the business conversation.

Developed and co-founded 4 years ago by then-teen siblings, Ayana and Ethan Klein, the 3DuxDesign architectural modeling system features an assortment of geometric forms and connectors engineered to fit most corrugated material. Designed to transform ordinary repurposed shipping boxes into tools for STEM learning, the 3DuxDesign modeling system makes high quality STEM education accessible to all children. The architecture sets and associated online design challenges encourage learners both at home and in school to utilize diverse skill sets, blending the arts and humanities with science, math, and modern technology to design solutions to real-world problems through imaginative, hands-on play.

“3DuxDesign inspires the next generation to innovate for positive change in pursuit creating real impact,” says co-founder Ayana. “I’ve learned first-hand how much more engaging STEM learning can be when softened by the arts, design, and creativity. And, I’ve seen how we can empower youth when we offer learners around the world a platform to share their cultures, their communities, and their ideas for how we can collaborate to create a better world.”


Over the past two years, the 3DuxDesign team has been building the Global Futures Design Lab, an online platform and Student Project Showcase with the goal to empower youth by creating a space for student voices and ideas. This initiative was designed to transition between remote and live learning settings that allow learners to continue their makerspace projects regardless of location, and obviates the need for shared materials for COVID-19 safety. The pilot program first launched in summer of 2020 and has already shown tremendous impact in both STEM achievement and social-emotional skills. 

3DuxDesign was an honoree in the student category alongside high-level design programs like MIT Media Lab, Milu, Carbostone, Future Interfaces Group - Carnegie Mellon University, California College of the Arts, IIT Institute of Design, and several others. The company will continue its mission to provide learners endless opportunities to create and integrate STEM learning in their classrooms.
