Hi all, This is a truly bittersweet moment for me as I have decided to step down as the Director of the Bourn Idea Lab at Castilleja School at the end of this school year. Before I go, I would love to hand off the program at Castilleja to someone fabulous, who will be able to take the program to new and better heights! Castilleja is truly a fantastic place to work and thrive as an educator, with amazing students, wonderful colleagues, and strong support from the leadership team.

The job posting is linked below - we have reframed the job title so the position is now called Director of Making and Engineering (so you no longer have to worry about responding to questions about whether the position is related to Jason Bourne or any movies in the Bourne Identity franchise. 😂)

Since I am not officially part of the interview/search process, I would be happy to answer any questions you might have about the position informally and offline. Please help me share widely if you know of someone who might be interested.

Castilleja School and Marymount School of New York are excited to announce that registration for Design Do Discover 2016 is now open!

Design Do Discover is not your typical conference. Rather than sitting and listening to presentations, attendees are expected to be active participants and will be working in small teams to design and build projects for two full days. You DO NOT need to have prior experience with the tools of a maker lab, but you DO need to arrive ready to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. This conference is for you if you think collaborating with colleagues in a fast-moving, slightly messy, and at times chaotic environment sounds really fun!

Please check our website for more info and link to registration:

We hope you (and perhaps others from your school!) will join us for 2.5 days of making fun!

Hi everyone, I just heard through the grapevine that SF's Excelsior Science Workshop (part of the California Science Workshop network) is hiring. For those who are unfamiliar, CSW sites have been empowering kids to make even before it became a movement. ESW is their newest site in the Excelsior neighborhood with a specific focus on making and tinkering.

It's not super clear from the job posting doc how to apply. I would perhaps call them up (on the phone!) and ask since their website doesn't seem to list an email address:

Just got this through email and want to share with folks in case anyone wants to present some awesome maker-ed curriculum!

Dear Educator,
Your are receiving this email because you either emailed an RSVP to the CJM’s Oct. 15 STEAM curriculum slam and open house or you had a conversation with me at some point about your interest in this subject area. I am writing to share that the application to participate as a presenter in the STEAM Slam is now live!

We are looking for teachers of all grades and all subjects to give short format, lively presentations of STEAM related lessons they’ve taught.  (Think poetry slam but for teachers!) Ideally, we are highlighting a diversity of projects, from complicated and tech-heavy to those of you who are just starting to dabble in this area.  If you are interested in sharing something, we’d love to hear from you.  Please click on the link below for more information and the online application.
Can’t wait to see what you all have to share!  
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
I look forward to seeing you next month,
