Chabot Space & Science Center
Chabot Space & Science Center’s Champions of Science Creative Collaboration Project will build on our successful and well-established Champions of Science youth development program for at-risk middle school students. In partnership with visiting artists and engineers, we will incorporate a new creative thinking curriculum into the students’ spring 2016 semester, and engender a safe, collaborative, open-idea environment. Curriculum will include a series of ideation activities, group trust-building games, and provocative thought exercises. Guest artists and engineers will encourage the students to work toward the exciting culminating project – the design and fabrication of a Rube Goldberg machine.
