" Offered in the spring and fall terms, Introduction to Stagecraft is a hands-on course that gets students working with the tools and techniques of theatrical production in a practical way. It is not a design course but one devoted to artisanship. Among the many remarkable final projects that have been proposed and presented at the end of the course have been a Renaissance hourglass blown in the MIT glass shop and set into a frame turned on our set shop lathe; a four harness loom built by a student who then wove cloth on it; a number of chain mail tunics and coifs; a wide variety of costume and furniture pieces and electrified period lighting fixtures."

Janet Echelman found her true voice as an artist when her paints went missing -- which forced her to look to an unorthodox new art material. Now she makes billowing, flowing, building-sized sculpture with a surprisingly geeky edge. A transporting 10 minutes of pure creativity. A quiz, thought provoking question, and links for further study are provided to create a lesson around the 10-minute video. Educators may use the platform to easily "Flip" or create their own lesson for use with their students of any age or level.

Learners create an Incan counting device called a quipu (pronounced kee-poo). Similar to an abacus, a quipu is a series of strings tied together, with a complex set of knots tied in each string to represent different numbers. Learners create their own system of representation, choosing different colors of string to represent different things important in their lives. For example, they could use knots in the string to indicate how old the different people in their family are, or how many years they lived in each of the places they have been in their life. A decimal system can be used to represent numbers larger than 10.
