Chicago Housing Authority Schedule, and a Request

This summer, I’ll be teaching and helping organize a six week Physical Technology workshop led by Terry Steinbach (Associate Dean at DePaul’s College of Computing and Digital Media) and with LeAnne Wagner (another faculty member at DePaul) for high-school-aged students from Chicago Housing Authority communities. We’re looking for as many collaborations and opportunities for our students as possible, so if you’re involved in the hacker/maker movement, and have something/someplace that would be great for us to visit (or would like to come out to DePaul’s Loop Campus to speak!) please reach out to me.

Here’s the program:
