Workshop at UW Glass Lab sparks imagination of area middle school girls

Ten middle schoolers from the Goodman Community Center’s Girls, Inc., group recently took part in a three-day workshop at the Art Lofts, where they used UW-Madison’s glass working facilities for about three hours each afternoon to get hands-on instruction in making neon art, glass blowing and glass etching. The course was co-taught by UW-Madison’s Helen Lee, an assistant professor in the Art Department and head of the university’s Glass Lab, and Brad Corso, a lecturer with the Art Department.

UW-Madison alumnus Robert Jecklin received a Fulbright Grant to work in the Republic of Azerbaijan, where he served as a public health teaching scholar for the five months ending in June 2014. Jecklin, who earned a Ph.D. from the School of Education’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis, reports that he helped one group of future teachers learn about public health. He also helped a second group of future psychologists learn about some of the theories used by Americans to explain health behavior.
