Center for Innovation in Informal STEM Learning

Playing with the Future is a collaboration of ASU’s Center for Innovation in Informal STEM Learning (CIISL), co-directed by Paul Martin and Rae Ostman, and the i.d.e.a. Museum in Mesa. Both CIISL and i.d.e.a. personnel have expertise and experience in informal learning opportunities for families. We will draw on the extensive library of activities of the National Informal STEM Education Network.

Playing with the Future

The family exploration area will give children and caregivers opportunities to invent with us at Emerge 2019! “Playing with the Future” features hands-on creative activities about inventing and responsible innovation; collaborative art/science activities that encourage social learning within and across groups; and conversational activities that explore ideas about the future.
