Curriculum Development 

Saturday Studio: Digital Design and Creative Explorations
This semester will be the third implementation of workshops for children ages 6+. I have designed, coordinated, and collaborated with graduate students, undergraduate students, and professors to bring this series of workshops to our community. It is the only program of its kind in the area. Together we work with school age children and youth to help them work on interest-driven projects in a digital environment. Children have access to digital cameras, stop motion animation software, computer programs and games: Scratch, Stencyl, Photo Editing Software, Pivot, Minecraft, and Portal. The children who participate design and develop projects based on their interests in new media – creating levels for video games, remixing video games, making animations, mixing media, making stop motion animation movies, and more, 2011-present
