We will be presenting our work with Expressive Electronics as a part of the Allied Media Conference's Radical Libraries / Archives / and Museums track: In this session we will explore how libraries can celebrate girls' intersectional identities and promote computational thinking skills through the use of low-cost, expressive electronics activities. Participants will create an expressive work using paper electronics and learn about a curriculum co-developed by librarians from Ypsilanti District Library (MI), Imperial County Free Library (CA), Tempe Public Library (AZ) and researchers from the University of Michigan’s School of Information.
