You’ll each choose a descriptor and a thing from my lists. Use the descriptor to make a thing, and post it here on the blog. Use the internet for research– tutorial sites like Instructables.com are great if you’ve never worked with a certain material before. Post up photos, a brief description of your thing including which descriptor and which thing you were assigned, and any sites/resources that proved useful during your research. Your assignment is due on the blog at 8pm ET Monday September 10.

Hello! I’m Becky Stern, your instructor for Making Studio. Welcome to the first class of your new grad school careers! Please make a post on this, our class blog, introducing yourself. I’ll go first.
I grew up in rural Connecticut and went to Parsons School of Design for undergrad and Arizona State University for grad school. I worked for a long time at MAKE Magazine, on the blog and as a video producer. Now I’m head of wearable electronics at Adafruit, an electronics company in downtown Manhattan. I consider myself an expert at making tutorials, and an enthusiastic novice at making most everything else.
