With the National Science Foundation, CodeCreate facilitated Assessing Computational Thinking in Making Activities in planning sessions and led instruction for the summer academy as well as purchasing and donating equipment and materials - inspiration for many more professional development presentations.

Workshops for Educators

A New Way of Reaching Students

Combining videos from Cardboard Challenges and Parallel Paths, CodeCreate planned to share our theories of articulated storytelling at the University of Wisconsin's Play Make Learn conference, however, in the summer of 2020, physical meetings were canceled, so CodeCreate worked with the university to show the powerful story of this work through online inspirations for educators.

Workshops for Youth

Online Digital Storytelling

Using learners' web cams as creative tools to both make and receive stories, CodeCreate worked with Facets Multimedia to adapt both Storytelling in Scratch and Facets's long-running film camp into online offerings then provided for the Chicago Creative Coalition and Power Up Tech Academy as well as Mut Theatre among other partners.

Cultural Exchanges

Youth in Motion

Bridging backgrounds in Europe, Africa, Turkey, Kurdistan and beyond, CodeCreate and Hamburg's Mut Theatre celebrated genuine diversity, however, mixing the dramatic opportunities of theatre with proactive technical building meant even greater STEM development in non-traditional learners.

Exhibitions and Commissions

Currents, Fibers and Forms

With the Homewood Science Center, the CodeCreate Collective developed an immersive, multi-generational, award winning exhibition on the intersection of technology, creativity and well-being.
