On Tuesday Feb 16, IFF director Margaret Wertheim will give a talk about the Crochet Coral Reef project at The Steward School in Richmond, VA. The talk will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Reef project and reflect on a decade of work at the intersection of art, science, mathematics, handicraft, environmentalism and feminism.
The event is held in the school’s Bryan Innovation Lab, “a 21st-century, problem-solving environment. Through experiential learning in this cutting-edge facility, students are able to grapple with real world issues, challenging their critical thinking and resourcefulness.”
The Steward School Satellite Reef, which is currently under construction, is the latest addition to the IFF’s worldwide Crochet Coral Reef project.
