Looking for something for your summer Saturday afternoons? M3 (Materials, Media, and Me) explores the similar ways that scientists, makers and artists approach projects. At M3, students learn through experience as local experts guide them through the design process. At M3, students learn through experience 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 cardboard, electronics, fabric, paper, recycled materials and coding/software. Students will explore the properties of these materials with prompts such as:
How does it bend?
How can you attach it to another material?
What can I make with this?
At the end of the class, students will have a take-home creation to share with the group.
Saturdays this summer starting June 15, 2019 – August 10, 2019
