Discover the power of design in connecting advances in science, technology, engineering, and math. Cooper Hewitt’s latest exhibition, Nature—Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial, showcases the groundbreaking ways designers are engaging with nature. In this program, educators will tour the exhibition and work with Dr. Max Liboiron, creator of BabyLegs, a marine plastics monitoring technology that can be used to test levels of micro plastics in various bodies of water.

Educators will create and test a BabyLegs prototype.

In the afternoon, the group will meet at Hudson River Park at Pier 84.

Sign up today for this highly interactive session on creative problem-solving for complex social and environmental issues!
