Last weekend: City as Classroom, City as Laboratory

Sunday 7/15, 9am - 8/12, 12pm, MIT Media Lab, Cambridge

City as Classroom, City as Laboratory is a series of educational workshops on Sundays 7/15-8/12 for youth (aged 8 to 14) in the Greater Boston area. Students will make use of "urban wilds" around Boston in order to understand the hybrid ecology of the growing city and propose imaginations for its future. Each workshop involves hands-on activites for inspiring recognition and appreciation of the complex ecological processes ongoing in urban contexts. The goal of this series is to inspire urban youth to champion future endeavors related to environmental science (including efforts in conservation, wildlife protection, sustainability, infrastructure development, and more) and to see the city as a space for experimentation, creativity, and speculation.
