038 | Collaborating With Your Community on Design Challenges | with Meghan Federer

The Works is a museum, but it is also much more than that. It is a place to not just learn but explore for kids, families, and adults — and it’s an active member of the Newark, Ohio, community.

Meghan Federer is the STEM Education Director for Middle and High School students at The Works, and she sees herself and the museum as a spark; an opportunity to ignite engagement in history, art, and technology. Meghan takes a hands-on role in helping kids and adults alike take charge of their learning and find new ways to explore.
