After the takeover of Notacon content in Cleveland this weekend (Nicolle ran something like 5 events), it looks like Pumping Station: One members will be providing a lot of content for a conference a little closer to home this weekend: Ripple at the University of Chicago.
Ripple is a conference that explores the role of creativity in urban education, as well as other topics related to teaching practice and education policy.
Here is a partial list of the speakers. And here is where to sign up.
PS1 Members will be providing the following content:
- Opening Panel (Christina Pei)
- Midday Panel 1: What is Education (Christina Pei and Robert E. Lee)
- Rogue Engineering Skills: lockpicking 101 (Christina Pei and Eric Michaud)
- Mine’s Smaller Than Yours: Nanotechnology and Chemistry in a DIY Environment (Sacha De’Angeli)
