Can We Fight Systemic Racism with STEAM?
Michael K. Dawson will share strategies Innovators for Purpose (iFp) has deployed over the past 7 years inspiring high-potential diverse youth, especially those underrepresented in the Design & STEM fields, to discover their passions, develop innovative mindsets and cultivate critical skills to make the difference they want to see in the world.
iFp’s most recent project This Should Not Be. will serve as a case study for talk. The groundbreaking augmented reality installation inspired by George Floyd's murder illustrates the ingenuity, creativity and ambition of Cambridge’s underrepresented youth when presented with opportunity. This Should Not Be. is currently on exhibit on the Cambridge Public Library’s lawn.
