“Hello Barbie” Teardown Sessions

Director: Amanda Ervin, Makerspace Coordinator

This grant supported a series of events during which members of the Union College community were invited to discuss the “Hello Barbie” toy. The series encouraged students to not only think about the gendered nature of play but to also see themselves as capable of critical making. Event participants were encouraged to explore “tearing down” and rebuilding the toy.
