Teen Night: Monster Machines* with David Zikovitz (ages 12–18)

Fri October 7 @ 19 h 00 min - 21 h 00 min

Create monster machines, and cards for Halloween using paper circuits and electronic components!

We all know paper is magic. Putting words and pictures on paper can transport us to new worlds, teach us new ideas, and give us new experiences. In this workshop with David Zikovitz we’ll find out what else paper can do, giving it a technological upgrade and turning it into so much more! We’ll incorporate conductive materials and electronics components and explore paper’s structural qualities to make monster cards, books, or sculptures that come to three-dimensional, interactive life.

He currently teaches coding and digital fabrication at Columbia University’s Teachers College where he is also a member of the Transformative Learning Technologies Lab and the Snow Day Learning Lab, both dedicated to researching and developing innovative technological learning experiences for young people.
