Nicole Merola and Daniel Cavicchi Meet with the LEGO Education Team in Denmark

In August Nicole Merola (​LAS Department Head and Associate Professor of Ecocriticism & American Literature)​, traveled to LEGO Headquarters in Billund, Denmark with Daniel Cavicchi (Dean of Liberal Arts and Professor of History, Philosophy, and the Social Sciences), Daniel Hewett (Director of Partnered Projects + Programs), and Cas Holman (Assistant Professor of Industrial Design), to meet with members of the LEGO Education team.  During 2014-2015 Nicole and Cas are co-leading RISD’s sponsored project with LEGO.  This project will be formally introduced to the RISD community (and guests) at a kickoff event on October 18.  The coursework components of the project are a Wintersession seminar and a Spring studio, both focused around the interplay of the analog and digital.
