talks

teaching

Informal Education

After school program, Remake Learning, 2014

I worked for project that was run by The Sprout Fund in Pittsburgh, PA. This organization created afterschool programs that focused on STEM for neighborhoods in Pittsburgh that did not have access to funding to support their own programs.

Makerspaces

After school program, Assemble, A non-profit makerspace in Pittsburgh, 2019

I worked in this non-profit makerspace in Pittsburgh serving the community of Garfield. I helped to develop cirriculum for children between the ages of 5 and 15.

Undergraduate Teaching

Undergraduate course, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Information Systems Department, 2021

I recorded three lectures for the flipped classroom setting. This course was entitled “Fundametnals of Human Computer Interaction”. I taught lectures on: Visual Design, Social Interaction, and Universal Usability.
