Description

THE MAKING OF JIM HENDERSON’S DOOZERS

FREE

Tuesday, March 27 • 7:00 PM

Breck Suite, Wright Hall

Presented by Dr. Stephen Brand, Executive Director of Global Learning and Development, Bay Path University

You may remember the Doozers from the Jim Henson blockbuster TV show Fraggle Rock in the '80’s? In those days, the Doozers were builders. In April of 2014, four of the Doozer kids, known as the Pod Squad, debuted as
inventors, engineers, designers, and problem solvers for Doozer Creek. This creek was a selfsustainable
community located just outside of human view. These adventurous three-inch “cute” green characters, utilized
their ingenuity to take their audience on a journey to solve a wide range of engineering, community, and business
challenges. Along the way they sometimes got assistance from a professor, adults around town, or the team at Doozer Depot.

Stephen Brand was the Educational Consultant on the production team that developed the characters, scripts, problems to be solved, techniques, tools, and more. He will share the production process and talk about how educators, parents and others who interact with children can help kids be “Doozer” problem-solvers now and in the future.

Bio:

Stephen has his Master’s in interactive technology in Education from Harvard University and a BA from Ohio State in Multi Media Design and Production. Over the years, he has developed educational experiences around the theme of science and creativity for kids and adults at the Boston Museum of Science, Liberty Science Center (in New Jersey) and was the opening President of the National Inventors Hall of Fame in Akron Ohio where he nationally launched Camp Invention. His doctoral dissertation brings all of this together as he explored the early inspirations of innovators that laid the foundation of their adult explorations.
