This immersive workshop will be led by L. Vargas, the Lower Eastside Girls Club’s senior manager of STEM programs. Participants learn about design thinking as a way to imagine and prototype new ideas for improving our city and our world as we rapidly adapt to our changing climate. Using sustainable and recycled materials, participants will brainstorm, design, and create prototypes of potential new ways to live in a world that is ever changing.
This workshop will be offered on site at MoMA, and registration is limited to members of the Lower Eastside Girls Clubs community.
