Leah Buechley, from the MIT Media Lab, paid the Museum a visit a couple of weeks ago. She is an amazing maker, an amazing teacher, and an amazing person. She gave a talk at the Museum about integrating technology into other mediums. I could tell just from her posture how enthusiastic she is about her work and the work of her students. Her presentation was great…But the real fun came the next day.
She taught a workshop for us in the MAKESHOP about utilizing circuits with simple things such as tape and paper. It was a very enlightening experience. I was also privileged to an informal chat with Leah as I drove her back to the airport.
Thanks again for visiting,
