Joseph Brown and Louis Fouché at Fletcher Maynard Academy, 2004
Joseph A. Brown ’07 (Mechanical Engineering) and Louis D. Fouché ’07 (Chemical Engineering and Physics) discuss issues of race and diversity with a group of seventh-grade students at Fletcher Maynard Academy in Cambridge, MA as part of a class project in the 2004 MLK Design Seminar.
MLK Design Seminar
The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. IAP Design Seminar (17.922) began in January 1999. Taught by MIT administrator Tobie Weiner (a 1998 MIT MLK Leadership Awardee) during Independent Activities Period (IAP), the course brings together MIT and Wellesley students to create artistic and political installations that have been placed in MIT's Lobby 7 and Lobby 10 to coincide with the university's celebration of Dr. King. Projects have included work with children and adults in the Cambridge Community Centers, original songs and performances, benefits for charities, various features in campus publications, and special projects.
