Just accepted an invitation to be Innovator of the Month for the Children’s Creativity Museum in San Francisco this coming December. In my role as a Kid*Spark Fellow, I’ll be setting up an installation and running workshops that highlight the benefits of Maker activity and Rokenbok construction in creative engagement and play that also delivers lessons about Engineering principles. It’s part of the museum’s commitment to “connecting families and children with innovative thinkers, makers and designers.”
I’m Looking forward to contributing to the body of work from the preceding featured Innovators and excited about the challenge. I’ve already started modifying some files from Rokenbok’s 3D library in preparation for the month.
And what better month is there for delivering installations and lessons using toys than December? ;-]
