Feedback form is now closed.

Activists can start at any age to make a difference in their communities. How can we reach people in our lives to encourage ongoing conversations about activism? Experience a “project slice” combining social justice and engineering design principles. You will research activists that inspire you, learn about jewelry design, and create your own prototype using creative maker tools such as a laser cutter, metal stamping, and beading. Elementary students who completed the project last year will be on hand to serve as expert advisers! Using the framework of a 1st grade Kid Activist project, let’s create wearable art to inspire others to appreciate the contributions of our diverse community of activists who broke the mold to fight for what is right. Stand up and make your voice heard!

Passionate about improving and innovating PBL in elementary schools. I want to see if we can make social justice and equity integrated parts of every project, not just an add-on. Also, I perform & teach improv and use it everyday in the classroom!
