Less than a month until we’re back! (Hide your excitement until the end of the post.)

What we’ve been discussing: we’re still fine tuning the new name. We hope to share soon and that it’s the most accurate reflection of what we’re looking to create.

What we’ve been writing: Sarah went to MIT’s D-Lab and also took time to look at how STEM fits into the vision.

Resources from the week:
