Academic Service

Our team is actively involved in a range of academic service areas, especially related to equity in STEM learning. To share research insights with the public and to foster research practice partnerships, we are actively involved in educational partnerships (Soft Robotics workshop at Munich International School; Equity and Education, Consulting for Dr. Pepe Alcami at LMU; Computational Crafting @ TUM, a workshop series for families of the city of Garching and the surrounding areas; Computational Crafting Lab gallery tour for Israeli Palestinian women delegation). This involves mentoring at school and out-of-school learning environments, and designing and facilitating workshops across the K-16 spectrum. We collaborate internationally with industry partners, non-profit organizations, and foundations.
