Christian McKay is a doctoral student in Learning Sciences at Indiana University. Christian is a working sculptor with his MFA from California College of the Arts. This experience and his prior lives as a helicopter mechanic, arborist, foundryman, and high school art teacher have helped shape his divergent thinking in education. Christian's research interests extend to design-based curriculum, and creativity through craft and digital fabrication in the classroom. His current project is a collaboration with Bloomington Project School in Indiana to build a Fab Cart to bring digital fabrication technology into the classroom for K-8 children.
