Announcing Our Fall Partnership

August 30th, 2010 by Katie Koch | No Comments | Filed in Curriculum, Schools, Teaching

We’re excited to announce our partnership with the Urban Assembly Institute of Math & Science for Young Women! We’ll be starting classes at the end of September, continuing for 10 weeks through December. We’re thrilled about the opportunity to share interaction design with a great group of girls who are already enjoying an accelerated math and science education.

About UA Institute:

UA Institute empowers young women through a rich and rigorous math and science education. Through our partners, students have the opportunity to actively participate in a range of internships. Our partners will also connect our students with role models and mentors that will inspire them to not only challenge their self-perceptions but also the stereotypes that currently exist for women in math and science today.

More about UA Institute on their website.

We’ll be working with a class of 15 bright 9th and 10th graders, kicking off the season with a field trip to R/GA. For many of the students this will be their first exposure to a design agency. We’re hoping that seeing design practiced in the real world will get them excited about starting their own projects and jumping into their investigations of the world around them.
