Technologist’s Apprentice: Documenting the Science of New York City

Sunday, June 1, 2014
1:30 pm - 2:45 pm

The Apprentice programs are small, hands-on workshops in which enthusiastic renowned scientists in interesting fields educate the curious. It’s your turn to help make history. Join NYU School of Engineering’s Dana Karwas in using creative data tools to take history out of textbooks and into an interactive adventure. You’ll take photos and provide descriptions for an application that will turn any phone into a mobile history portal, letting people explore hidden facts about their urban surroundings. You’ll help make history more accessible and relevant, so it’s easier for people to learn about (and learn from) the past.

This is a drop-off workshop where young scientists learn directly from leading scientists, technologists, and innovators. Ages: 5th grade and above; students need to bring a smartphone or tablet.

This program is supported by the Bezos Family Foundation.
