As an introductory course, Logic Design is geared towards familiarizing students with concepts, design, and practical use of digital circuits and systems. Part of the course requirement is for students to form teams and work together to conceptualize and design a digital system that meets an identified need for existing conditions or anticipated futuristic technology. This paper presents student approach to the process of need identification, conceptualization, design, and optimization of a digital system in a term project setting. In conclusion, we discuss lessons learned from student logic design, creativity, and aspirations.
