Paul Reynolds & Andrea Calvin to Participate in MCLA STEM Week

Paul Reynolds and Andrea Calvin are excited to join the STEM week activities at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in North Adams, MA.


STEM Week was created by the Baker-Polito Administration to boost students’ interest and raise awareness of STEM education so that educators at all grade levels may participate by planning STEM-based lessons, events and activities throughout the week. Students from pre-kindergarten through high school and postsecondary institutions are encouraged to take part in hands-on learning that aligns topics across STEM subjects and connects to other curricula.

On Thursday, Oct. 25, MCLA will present “Who Said it had to be a Go Cart?: Going Places with FabMaker Studio,” in CSI room 124 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. During this event, Paul A. Reynolds, award-winning author and co-founder of FableVision, as well as the Reynolds Center for Teaching, Learning and Creativity in Boston, will share how his own journey has been fueled by creativity.

Along with sharing anecdotes and original media, he will share the book “Going Places,” illustrated by his twin brother, Peter H. Reynolds. The story helps celebrate the most critical 21st century skills: communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.

Following Reynolds’ talk, students will join Andrea Calvin ’04, vice president of the Reynolds Center, for hands-on experience with FabMaker Studio. During this workshop, students will put the “Going Places” message in action and create their own unique vehicle and use the engineering design process to develop their paper prototype in Fab@School Maker Studio.
