DESIGN CASE with Mark Schrieber

Author: Kelly Greene

CSO Vivekraj, Nairobi, Kenya

The main purpose of Zoom in on science calls is to connect and interact worldwide with STEM experts and their careers to better understand the impact of their job in modern life, while we are quarantined.

And then… we met Mark Schreiber from DESIGN CASE and the basic Zoom Call kicked it up a notch!

An interesting part of his job is his Innovative and awesome making of pop up books and his makerspace was a place where people work on projects, network and ultimately, build cool stuff. In schools, they help students develop their skills and creativity, inspiring young learners to engage with the STEM agenda – Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics.

Mr. Mark was such a cool presenter and so different while others are presenting powerpoint slides which are too usual where he presented his slides which was a gigantic and marvellous pop up book.   

I have never had such an interesting learning session. I have observed those kinds of popup worlds in a few cartoons such as in a fraction of second things change. and they do that by utilizing computer illustrations but Mr. Mark used a few of the information on executing STEM and made computer realistic cartoons in real life.

I would highly prescribe my individual classmates and companions to go to Zoom In On Science calls regularly since it makes a difference if we get the impacts of particular occupations to advanced life. This in this manner is vital since when we get the effect of occupations, we too broaden our understanding towards how the world works and it gets to be simpler to select the career way you need yourself to induce included in.
