Emily believes that every person is a creative superhero. In her presentation, she will tell the stories of her students who range from ages 8 to 18, and how they used design and building projects to reimagine their own futures and communities. These projects include 10-year-old girls learning to weld, 8th graders CNC-cutting 900 pieces of wood to build their own school library, high school students erecting a farmers market for their small town that would create 4 new businesses and 15 jobs.
