Design Jam Accolades

NYSCI’s Chris Lawrence checks in to recap last week’s My Carbon Footprint 3D Design Jam… 

To mark Earth Day, NYSCI teamed up with the New Youth City Learning Network, The Mozilla Foundation, The MacArthur Foundation, Deutsche Bank Climate Change Advisors and the National Science Foundation for the first annual Earth Day My Carbon Footprint 3D Design Jam.

Seventy-five tweens, teens, adults, NYSCI Instructors, and Explainers got together to experiment, play, design and yes hack the Virtual Hall of Science, various websites, digital photographs and even good ‘ole markers on paper. 

Like a music jam, Design Jam participants worked on many different kinds of projects and then riffed off of each other to produce a collaborative online 3D exhibition space. 

Here is a recap from NYCLN’s Creative Director, Jessica Klein

Huge thank-yous and congratulations to the team at NYSCI and all our partners for helping make the Jam a reality. Great kickoff to My Carbon Footprint
