Session Information

Water: Past, Present and Future

Presented by: Michael C. Carlos Museum, Georgia Aquarium, and Zoo Atlanta
Date: Saturday, February 26, 10a.m. – 12 p.m.
Location: Virtually through Zoom

Explore the interdependence of civilizations on water and the natural environment with the Michael C. Carlos Museum, Georgia Aquarium, and Zoo Atlanta. As we look at environmental changes past and present, we will examine water sources as a key component of a healthy ecosystem and societal evolution. Collaborate with colleagues during breakout sessions to design a STEAM-focused PBL where students discover the current state of local water sources in their community.

Creating Exhibitions using Design Thinking

Presented by: Atlanta Botanical Garden and the High Museum of Art
Date: Saturday, March 12, 1 – 2:30 p.m.
Location: Virtually through Zoom

Discover how the design-thinking process was used in the creation of the Children’s Garden at the Atlanta Botanical Garden and how it is used in exhibitions at the High Museum of Art. We’ll explore the five phases of design thinking — empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test — and discuss how each stage is important when creating an engaging exhibition. What topics could your students explore through the creation of an interactive exhibition experience?
