"It's A Family Affair!"
A gathering of families and educators to explore the next generation of 21st century education.
Excited to announce world-renowned children's book author, illustrator and paper engineer, known best for designing the impossible in his acclaimed pop-up books will be sharing his incredible skills at I.A.F.A.
With an expected audience of 400 participants, our goal is to bring together the next generation of bright minds and present idea focused workshops on a wide range of subjects for students from the cradle to career, to foster their learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.
I.A.F.A. 2018 in New York City is your opportunity to connect with a diverse, engaged community. The majority of the programming is rooted in makerism and the arts. The education philosophy of I.A.F.A. revolves around project based activities. Workshop presenters will spend at least 85% of their activities engaging participants in hands-on activities. The projects include integrating science and math learning by designing and creating pop-up books, designing and building private networks for communities that do not have broadband access, supporting teaching artists who will work with participants to create plays from their personal stories, robotics demonstrations, and supporting participating NYC maker spaces as they host the I.A.F.A. Maker Crawl.
