On July 26th, 2012 Jugnoo’s Social Mix 2012 was held at the Royal York supporting the Remix Project and bringing great speakers together including
Gary Vaynerchuk, Amber Mac, Matt Hixson and more to talk about Social Business.

The Remix Project is a program helping marginalized youth become the creative change makers of tomorrow.

Maker Art at Tam High

We are developing a public makerspace in Tam High School’s state-of-the-art woodshop, to create cool objects — and grow a community of makers, students and teachers in South Marin.

Here are some of the artworks we are creating in Geo Monley’s woodworking workshop, called ‘You Can Build It’. With his help, I am building a ‘maker art cart’ to showcase the work of our students — and Howard Rheingold is making a triangular table for our Pataphysical Studios.

This week, I used the laser cutter to make characters for our City of the Future course. In this ‘maker art’ class, lower and middle school students will build a futuristic home with a cardboard ‘wonderbox’ and animated characters such as these. They will bring these wood and acrylic figures to life with lights, sounds and motion, using simple electronics.

Geo showed off ‘Maker Field’, the animatronic city his high school students are building with his help. Here’s their work in progress, which now features a variety of buildings (including ‘Trump Towers’ and a 5V power plant), as well as a robot car powered with Arduino.

These projects are good examples of what we could support with more maker programs for adults and teens in this new Tam High makerspace. More on this later.

Peacebuilding in Eastern Europe 2.0” (Moldova)
Sarah Declercq (Belgium) and Mads Danielsen (Norway) AEIF project: 30 young International Exchange Alumni from across Europe will gather for a 7-day seminar in Moldova and Ukraine. This seminar will empower young leaders through peer-to-peer education, meetings with key decision-makers and visits to relevant institutions. By connecting with a global network of youth diplomats, participants will have a greater understanding of the peace process in Eastern Europe and will have a greater intercultural understanding.

We would love to hear from you.
