THE WQI PROJECT
GETTING MIDDLE SCHOOLERS ENGAGED IN THEIR LOCAL WATER QUALITY
From 2012 to 2015 I worked as a design intern at PlusUs – an educational design consultancy “working to re-imagine the future of learning”. While at PlusUs I assisted the team on projects for k-12 schools, universities, and government organizations.
The most ambitious project I worked on while at PlusUs was the branding for The WQI Project an environmental science curriculum insert that gave teachers an opportunity to get their students interested in local ecology through hands-on testing and data collection.
I kicked off the project by creating a water cycle inspired map that illustrated all the potential interactions that the students might have with water in their hometowns. This map ended up being the central identity for the curriculum from which we built the instructional booklet, website and other collateral materials.
OTHER PROJECTS WITH PLUSUS
LOGO FOR THE LEAGUE
OF EXTRAORDINARY EDUCATORS
In the Summer of 2015 PlusUs founded The League of Extraordinary Educators, a monthly informal gathering for teachers. I worked with PlusUs intern Lola Fadojutimi to create the League’s logo and branding materials and later presented at the meeting about my experience as a student from a project based school environment.
MOODY’S MEGA MATH MODELING GUIDEBOOK
PlusUs collaborated with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics to create an open source math modeling toolkit. I assisted the team in the design of both the the Math modeling guidebook and the website.
