City of the Future: Fourth Class at Tam High
Maker Projects

Our middle-school students at Tam High are building a City of the Future together, using arts and electronics to make a model of what our world may be like in 100 years.

In our fourth class, students decorated their characters and wonderboxes, adding more color, light and motion to their homes of the future. We formed four teams to create these public spaces for their city: underwater mines, segregated neighborhoods, surface rubbles and tall skyscrapers. Students started designing these spaces together, preparing materials for next week’s construction. We also discussed names for their city of the future, with these finalists: A15, Moscow and Springfield (we will vote next week).

In their post-apocalyptic city of the future, the rich are separated from the poor, who mine the sea floor and are oppressed by a government run by machines. We are inviting them to invent solutions to that city’s problems — and to dream up a better world.

Geo Monley and I are teaching this after-school class together, with the help of Cynthia Gilbert: it’s very fulfilling for us to engage students through art, technology and storytelling, combined in the same project-based course.

Students also seem to be enjoying themselves, based on what they and their parents are telling us. Through this course, they will develop a range of skills, from creative expression to science and engineering (STEAM). And they will learn to create their own interactive art with simple electronics, in a playful way that makes learning more fun.
