Exhibition of Maker-Centered Learning

April 29 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

Free

Come see and hear how DC teachers and students have taken on maker-centered learning practices, in and out of the classroom, over the past year. At the Exhibition of Maker-Centered Learning, you will see the power of making in a variety of contexts–across grade levels, from preschool to high school, in a variety of subject areas, and in museums.

Educators will show ways they have encouraged the examination of systems in order to confront injustice; exploration of abstract concepts in literature and language through making; hacking of ideas and physical objects in order to improve them; and consideration of our own role in acting on the world to make it a better place for everyone. Plus much, much more!

This exhibition is a kick-off to a conference for educators showcasing the Making Across the Curriculum and JusticexDesign projects–two maker-centered initiatives out of Project Zero, a research group at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education–but it is open to all (we recommend age 12 and up) as a Remake Learning Days-DMV Festival Event!

RSVP HERE!

Early in the week of April 29, the Zoom link for the Exhibition will be sent to all who have signed up to attend.

Please email Jim Reese (jim.reese@wis.edu) with any questions.
