Lanzamos nuestra primera sesión virtual de “Made in the USA”, nuestra actividad maker que se hace en familia. #QuédateEnCasaHaciendo con American Space Madrid. ¡Estamos contigo! #AtHomeWithASM
Con Andrea Brady como facilitadora, “Made in USA” es una actividad donde adultos y niños de más de 6 años tienen la oportunidad de participar juntos en actividades maker. Las sesiones virtuales aúnan practicas artísticas con tecnología. En esta sesión, las familias crearán un juego con canicas en una actividad que se llama “Marble Run”.
Dirigido: A niños a partir de 6 años junto a mínimo un miembro de la familia/ responsable adulto.
Actividad bilingüe (inglés preferente).
Horario: habitualmente un sábado cada mes de 12:30 a las 14 h (una hora y media) en la Biblioteca del Instituto Internacional.
|Made in the USA is a maker activity that connects artistic practice with technological know-how. It seeks to build children’s capacity to create projects at the intersection between two fields that are key within STEAM education, while also increasing expertise across the ASM community.|
During each session, participants carry out sensory STEAM science and art experiments and projects, facilitated by an expert maker in the field. This is a family activity where children and adults work collaboratively. The overarching goal of the activity is to provide the tools necessary for children to engage in replicable maker activities at home where they can share their skills with family members, thereby limiting “screen time” across the family unit while developing critical thinking skills through creative projects. Projects may include: sensory dough, gravity art, evaporation art, marble painting, writing with light, etc.
With a BA in Art from the University of California Berkeley and an MFA from Mills College, California, Andrea is a practicing sculptor who moved to Spain after exhibiting widely in California. In her work she recycles found objects and “trash.” She is currently focused on making “machines” that incorporate electronics and 3D-printed parts. Over the years she has conducted art workshops for children of all ages, and uses art as a vehicle for learning English in her classes for young learners. She has also taught “Go Electric” at the Institute, a class in which young students conduct experiments in electricity and magnetism.
