SCIENCE EDUCATION + ART
In 2014, Christine did little projects with two fantastic educational programs: Nerdy Derby and Beam Camp.
Nerdy Derby is all about building 'toy' cars with any type of materials, and racing them down Nerdy Derby's state-of-the art tracks, made by founder Tak Cheung.
Inspired by the Pinewood Derby fo the Boyscouts,, Nerdy Derby emphasizes ingenuity over speed.
After helping Tak out with a few ND event, buddies Tak and Christine traveled to New Hampshire to the Beam Camp, where they both taught basic science and technology to kids ages 8-15 through art. Christine focused on the human body: the kids were each asked to each make a body part while they learned simple stitching techniques and ceramics. At the end of the week we assembled all the parts into a full human anatomy figure.
As a person who learns through tactile experiences, Christine is a firm believer in 'making the stuff you are trying to learn'.
Below are images of the (awesome) kids' work + a few domain leaders trying to figure out
Tak's technical stuff.
