The Studio at Anythink Wright Farms Debut Announcement
The Studio at Anythink Wright Farms celebrates its debut with refreshments and hands-on demonstrations Friday, May 3, 2013, from 4-7 pm. Community members and media are invited to join Anythink staff for this interactive unveiling of the district’s first digital learning lab for teens.
Guests of The Studio at Anythink Wright Farms debut are encouraged to explore their creative side through hands-on, interactive experiences, including video/audio recording and editing, stop animation, karaoke and collaborative photo editing. Anythink staff will be on hand to discuss how teens are using the space as well as upcoming programs available in The Studio. Refreshments will be provided.
The Studio at Anythink Wright Farms is the latest addition to Anythink’s overall approach to hands-on, participatory learning. It joins The Studio at Anythink Brighton, the district’s first makerspace, in promoting creativity through exploration. The Studio at Anythink Wright Farms serves as a designated space for teens to interact with technology, using the “hanging out, messing around, geeking out” (HoMaGo) learning philosophy. HoMaGo, an approach based on research of how youth learn in relation to digital media, encourages students to play, explore and connect with personal passions in order to get the most of their digital learning experience.
The Studio at Anythink Wright Farms is made possible from a $100,000 grant funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. Anythink is one of the first 12 museums and libraries in the U.S. to receive this grant and serve as a national prototype for the learning labs project.
