Teaching & Workshops
Sharing skills is at the heart of community. Prototype workshops teach a broad range of skills that provide access to new knowledge through hands-on making, equity-building skills, and a community of support. A few favorites include desktop laser cutting, salary negotiation, and DIY funeral preparation. I teach Prototype classes on resume writing, CAD modeling, 3D printing, and laser cutting.
Along with co-founder Erin Gatz, I have also taught workshops on prototyping, community building, and entrepreneurship at the University of Pittsburgh, Chatham University, and Carnegie Mellon University.
Girls to the Front
Workshops prioritize the experiences of women. Feminists of all genders are invited to participate and learn together.
Prototype has also partnered with the City of Pittsburgh to host several panels around Inclusive Innovation and the Maker City initiatives.
