Brandeis Partners with San Francisco Jewish Film Festival
We are thrilled to share that Brandeis is a community partner for the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival (SFJFF), taking place from July 21 to August 7. We are co-presenting the film Screenagers, a film that examines the impact of digital devices on our lives and the fraught household negotiations taking place around them.
In this week’s White House-issued press release, The Brandeis School of San Francisco was recognized for our makerspace and upcoming 2-week Summer Creativity Institute for our faculty, which begins next week. "Today, in addition to building makerspaces, a broad coalition of organizations are announcing a set of additional steps to support student-centered learning in both formal and informal environments, by expanding their offerings to in-need students and working with teachers," the press release notes. The Summer Creativity Institute will teach our faculty about design thinking, making, and tinkering. Faculty will then develop curriculum focused on ethical creativity for the classrooms and in the schools makerspace, CREATE+BUILD.
