This fall I’ll be launching a new participatory storytelling project entitled Robot Heart Stories. At its core Robot Heart Stories is an experiential education experiment. Over the course of 10 days two classrooms in underprivileged schools (one in Montreal and the other in LA) will work together to help a robot make her way home using science, math, history, geography and creative writing. The project concludes with an actual space launch to the international space station.
DIY DAYS returns to NYC on March 5th with an action packed day of talks, workshops, open sessions and networking. Speakers this year include Frank Rose, Christine Vachon, Ted Hope, Douglas Rushkoff among others.
We’ll be working hard to stream the event so if you’re outside the us make sure to tune in. And if you happen to be near the NYC area there are still a few spaces left – registration is free but we’ll hit capacity very soon. Visit http://www.diydays.com for more details.
