Ann Watt Selected for Think With Things Pilot Project

22 Apr 2015    By Keith McGuffey

Ann Watt, Master Teacher in the Department of Child, Youth and Family Studies, has been selected as one of 101 participants from 17 countries for a pilot “Think with Things” project.

"Think with Things" is a part of The Open Education Challenge, an annual competition launched in partnership with the European Commission as part of Startup Europe. Education startups present their ideas, and the winning teams receive support in terms of mentoring and seed money through the European Incubator for Innovation in Education.

Ann chose Think with Things, " their startup idea involves two of interests of mine: found objects – also referred to as loose parts or recycled/reusable materials as well as items from nature – and technology." Participants will be posting their collaborative work on the Think with Things Blog.
