M3: Materials, Media, and Me

June 24, 2017 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Saturday, repeating until August 19, 2017

Looking for something for your summer Saturday afternoons? M3 (Materials, Media, and Me) is Assemble’s summertime Saturday program, running from 1pm-3pm. It’s a free workshop for kids ages 6-10 to get to know the material world around them!]

At M3, students learn experientially as local experts guide them through the design process. Each week, a different artist or technologist will introduce a material, show students how they use the material, and lead them through a project.

M3 classes highlight Light,, Paper, Fabric, Electronics, Recycled Materials, Cardboard,  Light and Code. Students will explore the properties of the materials with the instructors — How does it bend? How can you attach it to another material? What can I make with this? — before planning their own project. At the end of the class, students will have a take-home creation to share with the group.
