Making School Matter Through Community Engagement

Mar 7, 2023

1:30pm – 3:00pm CT

A MacArthur Fellow is establishing a first-of-its-kind Center for Creative Learning on a public high school campus. It will feature a professional gallery showcasing interactive STEAM exhibits designed and fabricated by students. Class time will be redirected toward authentic community engagement in the gallery. In this workshop, participants will hear about and be immersed in this vision. They will interact with exhibits, machines, students, and educators to learn through experience.
