TweetHaus is all about community and collaboration. We love our partners and want you to know about them, too!
Park Day School
Park Day School is located in the Temescal neighborhood in Oakland, CA, and has been our core collaborator on the TweetHaus project. With their generosity and support, we have created a flexible, modular curriculum and are now working on our second implementation of the project. Park Day, host of the East Bay Mini Maker Faire, is a school invested in maker culture and project-based learning. They are engaged in an exciting new pilot program, along with Oakland Technical High School, called DesignME (design, make, engage). DesignME is a project of Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Project Zero and the Abundance Foundation. The program cultivates the disciplines of problem finding / solving, community building, and innovation; and to understand the most effective application of maker principles and the design thinking process in the classroom.
Mosswood Park & Oakland Parks & Rec
Our first official location partner, Mosswood Park staff and Oakland Parks & Rec embraced the TweetHaus program with great passion and enthusiasm in spring 2012, allowing us to temporarily install two birdhouses in the park. We are aiming to work in more local parks this year and to partner with Mosswood on a TweetHaus after-school program in the spring and summer 2013.
East Bay Mini-Maker Faire
The East Bay Mini-Maker Faire is an incredible local event hosted at Park Day School. FLUX & TweetHaus participated in and were supported by this event this year. We were thrilled to be part of something this amazing right in our own backyard.
