At TechHive, youth work alongside designers and educators to develop public experiences that promote science and technology education. Our design work includes exhibits, workshops, games, teaching guides and media. These experiences have touched thousands of members of the public since 2013.
Best of all, by bringing high school and undergraduate students onto our design team, and having them work alongside professional scientists, engineers, designers and educators we get an opportunity to train a new generation of creative minds. We believe the combination of real world problems, hands-on work, and a community that is diverse in ideas, backgrounds and experiences forms the best environment for youth who want to develop their passion and skills. It also gives our staff an opportunity to co-develop new educational materials with the input of the youth who will ultimately use them. Hear more about the program in this short video:
