Creative problem solving is addressed as playing a major role in education and employment now and in the future. The author examined the role of the Design Build Process and its ability to address creative problem-solving using Fabrication Laboratory equipment. The author seeks to give educators an educational development tool in which high school educators can utilize within their Technology Education program. The method utilizes a Quasi-Experimental design with treatment groups using the Design Build Process within a Fabrication Laboratory setting. The curriculum allows the instructors to implement projects that fit the goals and objectives of the course that they are teaching while enhancing creativity within their students. The null hypothesis was accepted in that no significant difference was found in creativity between the control and treatment groups. However, qualitative data suggested that several merits exist in teaching creativity within the Design Build Process.
