Philanthropy Miami 2016 “Shark Tank”

Philanthropy Miami 2016 is using the “Shark Tank” model this year in its grant-giving competition. While all of the second round contenders are worthy of the prize, only four will go on to the next round.

This second phase is determined by the public’s vote and as I’ve been a part of the DESIGN YOUR EVERYDAY (DYE) project, I urge you to please vote for our multifaceted, hands-on exhibition and collaborative partnership within the Innovation Labs at the new Frost Science Museum.

The project will focus on instilling creative and critical thinking by examining the intersections of design and art with developments in science, engineering, and technology. It will be bolstered by representational objects, in-house support mechanisms, key community alliances, and a virtual presence extending beyond our physical walls.

With the benefits of Learning-Through-Making and Object-Based Learning, DYE is poised to make a positive and lasting impact on the community, our youth, and the 16 – 25 year of age demographic.
