More Electrifying Paper Engineering, National Museum of Women in the Arts

Meeting with the National Museum of Women in the Arts Education Department

In a meeting last week with the education staff at the National Museum of Women in the Arts (Deborah Gaston, Addie, Ashley and Lucinda Presley) we discussed how to incorporate lights into pop-up cards as part of the museum’s ongoing programs combining art and science. I reviewed my experience with public school teachers in Charlottesville, Virginia, and we outlined the steps in a possible lesson plan. Plus, we tried some hands-on circuitry ourselves. After that, a trip to my favorite nearby eatery, Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken for their famous Creme Brulee doughnuts.
