What’s in your Museum?
We asked a wildly diverse group of 24 Pittsburghers to explore the vast collection of the four Carnegie Museums and tell us what objects they would have in their collections and why. Our guest curators included a security guard, humorist, artist, soccer player, a group of middle schoolers, and a Dean of Computer Science. As you might expect they each have their own unique story of which objects spoke to them. Their picks are now on display in Curious Collections, an interactive cabinet at Pittsburgh International Airport.
Seeing source code for the first time can be intimidating. What do all the syntax colors mean? What does it do? What happens if I break something? There can be a general sense that coding is too complicated to even know where to start. This past weekend the Studio hosted two Hour of Code sessions, in partnership with the Carnegie Legacy Girls, where girls between the ages of 10 and 13 broke those boundaries and started to explore some of those questions.
I ideate, storyboard, source the equipment, solder the electronics and write the software necessary to bring immersive museum experiences to life.
