Inspiring Teenagers in Digital Fabrication

20170429_110313

In the last 2 months, Maria Santos and I carried out several workshops to inspire teenagers in digital fabrication. One workshop was held in April at the American Space Barcelona and focused particularly on a critical reflection upon how technology influenced our personal lives. In June we also participated in the Oracle4Girls which aimed to attrack and retain girls in STEM and we conducted a second workshop in this line.

World-As-Support | Digital Graffiti on Campus

Together with Laura Malinverni, I participated in the Campus Junior event “La universidad y yo” at Universitat Pompeu Fabra. We invited teenagers to explore possibilities of rethinking and changing learning spaces through the use of a mixed reality system. During a brainstorming activity, the participants reflected upon which learning spaces had caught their attention and how they would like them to “transform”. After that, they created first their own ideas for graffitis with pencil and paper. The graffitis were then digitalized and the teenagers explored their application in relation to the physical space of the university campus.
