Design, Do, Discover 2017

New York, NY - Jun 22 9:00 am to Jun 24, 2017 3:00 am

Price: more than $250

Design Do Discover is not your typical conference.Rather than sitting and listening to presentations, attendees are expected to be active participants and will be working in small teams to design and build projects for two full days. You DO NOT need to have prior experience with the tools of a maker lab, but you DO need to arrive ready to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. This conference is for you if you think collaborating with colleagues in a fast-moving, slightly messy, and at times chaotic environment sounds really fun!

Participants will:

1. Collaborate with others to identify, ideate, and prototype hands-on projects relevant to your teaching, with guidance from our team of coaches

2. Gain hands-on experience with some of the major tools of a maker lab, ranging from "low tech" materials to laser cutters, 3D printers, and programmable microcontrollers

3. Attend pop-up sessions, taught by our wonderful team of coaches, to get an introduction to some maker tools/techniques/skills

4. Meet like-minded educators and become part of a community of maker educators

Early bird registration ($400) ends April 15.  Regular registration is $450.  Information about D3 2017 may be found at:
