Join ASTC’s Making and Tinkering Community of Practice for an experimental session where we’ll co-create an OpenMAKE event that’s equal parts meet-up and make it up. This ASTC Intensive workshop will be exactly that—intense—but also a total blast. Attendees will get a chance to actively participate in the research, development, and implementation of a pop-up experience. We’ll spend the first half of the day creating the installation and the second half facilitating and debriefing. It’ll be an action-packed day “making” the most of your ASTC 2018 experience! Preregistration required. Limited to 50 participants. Fee: $150 per person (includes breakfast and lunch).
