ATLAS Speaker Series: Playing, building and sketching with electronics with Leah Buechley


Leah Buechley will discuss her work at the High-Low Tech MIT Media Lab where people of all ages sketch, design and build their own art pieces using electronics in combination with traditional arts and crafts that use textiles, paper and wood.

Buechley is an alumna of CU-Boulder and an associate professor and director of the High-Low Tech MIT Media Lab. Her work engages diverse audiences – which include children – in designing and building their own crafts and artworks which blend computation and electronics with traditional crafts. These developments are then shared with people through toolkits, tutorials, workshops and curricula.
