Create Your World
Google Fiber approached Jack Morton with the goal of using their Fiber spaces to create and foster local communities in their pilot cities. They hoped to reach girls, aged 10-13, and introduce them to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) through workshops and events. We created short engaging workshops that coupled education, pop culture, and DIY technology. The workshops were organized around issues that they felt passionate about: activism, music, and animation. In the workshops, the girls made their own stop motion animations, musical instruments that interfaced with their computers, and political dioramas that they could share with their friends on social media.
For this project, I created and designed workshop curriculum, participated on the ideation process, researched and implemented technology, and helped create technical guides for the workshop facilitators.
