Hi Paola,

Thank you for writing.  You should definitely come and visit Noisebridge while you are in town!  I'm Mitch Altman, one of the co-founders of Noisebridge.  One of the primary motivators for starting Noisebridge was to create a creative learning environment, and to promote project-based, hands-on, play-based learning.  Because it works.  It is amazingly effective at helping people learn a lifetime if learning.

Unfortunately, I won't be in town to meet you in October, but there are others who would be happy to show you around, as well as talk about education.  I've cc-ed "J" on this email, since he is a big education advocate at Noisebridge.

I'm sure we can arrange for you to have the use of a room for you to use while you visiting.

Dear All,

We write from Brazil, from the Instituto Catalisador, a civil society organization focused on catalyzing hands-on creative learning in Brazilian public schools with a mission of collaborating with the building of a more meaningful and transformative educational experience for students and teachers in our country.

In October 2017, the days preceding the FabLearn Conference at Stanford, we are organizing a Learning Journey for Brazilian educators interested in project based learning, maker education, learning communities and educating cities. One topic that interests us is how maker culture and hacker ethics may be very relevant in making schools more meaningful. A collaborator of the Institute, Fernando Carril, spoke highly about NoiseBridge and suggested we visited you during our trip. It would be great if we could arrange a visit to the space, talk to one of you who is involved in education and would be interested in talking to us as well as use a room for a group meeting.  We are positive that insights and good discussions for this group of educators could emerge from learning more about how NoiseBridge approaches learning. Is it possible? We may arrange a call to further this conversation if this is in your interest as well.

We will be about 10 Brazilian Educators and could visit Noisebridge on the 18th of October.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Kind Regards

Paola Salmona Ricci

Instituto Catalisador - Brasil
