Outreach and Service

Robotics Workshop with Children In 2008, I worked with a group of graduate students to form Construction for Learning: An Open House in Technology for Education. We are supported by The Graduate School at Northwestern and the Center for Connected Learning. We provide a graduate professional development group for students interested in the design of technology enhanced learning environments, and outreach activities to local after-school groups.
