STEM and the Imagination: Public Lecture Series
Part one of a STEM lecture series hosted by Adelphi University’s interdisciplinary collaborative Manhattan institute.
Join Cindy Maguire and Rob McCallum for A Wicked Problem: STEAM pedagogies, climate change, and vulnerable communities to discover a socially engaged STEAM project centered around a community issue in Ilavalai, Sri Lanka where they worked with local partners to create, produce and share their experiences with a broader global audience. Maguire and McCallum present research on a series of workshops centered around a “wicked problem” identified by the students.
Learn how students linked their prior knowledge to the engineering design process and a scaffolded series of embodied, making activities culminating in an exhibition of collaborative 3D sculptural inventions designed to clean up ocean water and/or the beach without disrupting the natural fauna and sea life.
