Our very own Ian Cross has joined the advisory board of Philadelphia’s Breadboard! With his background in ergonomics, design and developing education programs he’s looking forward to collaborating with the diverse and talented team of advisors.
Breadboard is a program at the University City Science Center, whose mission is to offer public access to a new generation of fabrication technology and workspace in an effort to empower individuals and convene communities around creative applications of technology.
Breadboard programs support STEM (Science,Technology, Engineering, Math) educational initiatives and arts-based learning activities. Breadboard partners with The Esther Klein Gallery and NextFab Studio to engage the public in art and design that has been influenced by technology. Through NextFab Studio, artists, community groups, and students can work closely with entrepreneurs, engineers, and industrial designers in order to create these unique exhibits to be displayed in EKG.
