May’s Design Round Table was held at The Shipley School and hosted by Lower School Science Teacher Dan Del Duca and Upper School Science Teacher and Elizabeth Zodda.

We began with a discussion on how maker-ed skills can be incorporated into other disciplines, and shared stories of how making has facilitated cross-disciplinary projects. Afterwards, we visited the school’s beautiful maker facilities and looked at some student work.

We had a fantastic turnout this month, with educators from The Shipley School, Agnes Irwin, Friends’ Central, Westtown, The Haverford School, and others.
