March 26th at 11PST A Look @ Linkages
We're hosting a hangout that's all about linkages as part of our ASTC Community of Practice for Making and Tinkering in Museums. This hangout highlights our ongoing interest in mechanical motion -- and a fun way to connect with STEM-rich learning (literally).
Keith Braafladt kicked off the CoP’s enthusiasm for this topic at last year’s ASTC workshop. Keith and Joe Imholte, his colleague at the Science Museum of Minnesota, will talk more about what they’ve tried at SMM and share some useful tips for facilitating this experience.
Noga Elhassid is a longtime friend of the Tinkering Studio and will share what she’s done with linkages as part of her Moving Toys Workshop half-way across the globe, in Tel Aviv. She's preparing for an official residency with us at the Exploratorium in late May where we'll be exploring this idea further.
Trevor Taylor with the Oklahoma Museum Network will share what they’ve been up to across the state of Oklahoma and how he spreads an activity idea across an extended state-wide network.
Lianna Kali from the Tinkering Studio will share a few things she's been working on, but more importantly offer an invitation to join us in a summer of R&D around linkages that begins with Noga’s residency on May 26th.
We hope this hangout gets you excited -- and can't wait to see what literal and figurative linkages get made this summer!
I hope you can join us for what should be a lively and imaginative session
