About Tech Tales: Storytelling Through Engineering

Tech Tales: Storytelling Through Engineering

Presented by Carrie Tzou, Associate Professor, School of Educational Studies, University of Washington Bothell and Megan Bang, Associate Professor, College of Education, University of Washington in Seattle


What do engineering design, programming and science have to do with cultural history? In the TechTales workshops created by a team of community partners led by UW Professors Carrie Tzou, Megan Bang and Philip Bell, parents and children interweave their personal and cultural histories and stories with robotics and coding. In this talk, you will learn how these projects encourage families to explore science and engineering together as they engage with robotics, computer science, coding and e-textiles.


About Pub Night Talks

Pub Night Talks

The University of Washington Bothell and McMenamins co-sponsor this speaker series in which university faculty and other notables from the community share their expertise through entertaining and informal talks. Learn about interesting topics and issues of the day while enjoying the hospitality of Anderson School’s Haynes’ Hall. It's like being back in the classroom -- except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
