Happy Halloween design thinkers!
Read this cursed update of our ghastly weekly proceedings if you dare...A MOMENT OF TERROR:
Tuesday the k12 lab brainstormed and prototyped some activities for a
design challenge created by Lara Burenin, a 3/4 science teacher at East
Palo Alto Academy Elementary School, to teach students about Ecosystems
and Biomes.Creativity, Cognition, and Carnage:
lab researcher Maureen Carroll presented a poster documenting how
design thinking works in classrooms at the annual Creativity &
Cognition conference in Berkeley on Wednesday. This conference
attracted researchers and practitioners from around the world, and was
a fantastic forum for sharing the work you do.
BEYOND THE CRYPT:
(Next Few Weeks)GOBLINS INITIATE TERROR:
Another reminder to check out GIT, Global Innovation Tournament,
starting next Wednesday. The organizers are interested in getting more
children involved this year and have been very receptive to our
suggestions. Check out their website here
