Virtual Teacher Workshop: Build Problem-Solving Skills with Craft

Wednesday, February 15, 2023, 4:15 – 5:45pm EST
How might students explore place and time to imagine a new future?

"This Present Moment" marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Renwick Gallery. The works on display capture the challenges of today, from environmental crises to poor labor conditions and more, and inspire dreams about a path forward. What open-ended problems do these works prompt us to consider? What data is needed to understand and solve these issues? What procedure or algorithm might help us create positive change? Let’s apply computational thinking to craft!

Online program. A Zoom link and a list of suggested materials will be sent to registered participants 24–48 hours in advance of the workshop.
