Liza is an designer, Maker, educator, artist, and Brooklynite engaged in challenging educational, cultural, and historical paradigms through playful interactions with technology and the different materials we use to make it.
Her work includes researching informal and formal learning spaces away from the screen and towards more tangible forms of computation. She has given numerous workshops to a range of ages on soft circuits, e-textiles, computational craft, basic physical computing, and more. Currently she is designing a workshop and toolkit for educators that weaves traditional craft techniques with low cost smart materials to create new points of entry for learners into computer science and computational thinking skills.
Generally, she seeks to blur the boundaries between craft and computation, low and high technology, and art and computer science. She enjoys dancing on the margins of disciplines, because that is where the real fun happens.
