Overview - Lighthouse Creativity Lab

Fellow

by Aaron Vanderwerff -

Recently I was tasked (or really I tasked myself) with creating a writeup of our program at our (Lighthouse Creativity Lab) website.  When I heard  there were questions about embedding making and a maker mindset into standards based curriculum, I thought I would share my writeup here.  In addtion to this overview, we have narratives of ongoing projects at our site. As a public charter school, we are working to integrate making into a CCSS and NGSS aligned curriculum and we are working with other schools in the area to do the same.

Documenting a project using a “failures box”

Fellow

by Susanna Tesconi -

At Laboral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, I worked with 6 groups this year from primary school to high school, each one with a different project. Consequently a lot of prototypes are hanging around the fabLAB. In order to keep the lab not too messy I decided to have each group fabricate stackable boxes by modifying a design from thingiverse.
