“Promote gender equality and empower women” is one of the eight Millennium Development Goals that the United Nations adopted in the year 2000 and aims to achieve by 2015. Gendered Arrangements, an initiative of the Women’s and Gender Studies program in the department of Sociology at Virginia Tech, is in response to the third goal of promoting gender equality and empowering women.
Area makers ages 13 to 18 are invited to share what they make with the world at Virginia Tech’s first Make-to-Learn Workshop. The free event will be held on Saturday, April 6, from 1-5p.m. in STUDIOne. Makers create everything from engineering-oriented projects to traditional arts and crafts. Participants will complete a project, but will also learn how to identify, document, and explain their process.
