During workshop, the team had 40 hours to learn, design and construct tech-art pieces for the exhibit. Watch them learn. See their initial exhibit designs and the development process. Then view the Exhibit video to see how their ideas turned out.
2019's "The Garden" Exhibit centered on garden themed Tech-Art pieces. The electronic and paper elements were placed in a real garden. Starting with an Opening Reception on July 13, the exhibit was on display for seven days at Colonial Heights Library, and received approximately 450 visitors.
During the last week of Workshop, team members received hands-on exposure to drone coding, soldering and virtual reality. Enjoy their excitement.
We employ and empower youth assistants as leaders because we believe that youth teachers and peer mentors are a perfect resource to help other youth learn.
Workshop materials are designed to enable participants to "teach themselves", experiment, and "fail forward" into success.
Experienced adult guides are here to help youth participants learn how to think logically, overcome obstacles, work together and create technology infused art.
