Karen Wilkinson and Mike Petrich design programs at the Exploratorium in the Learning Studio, a workshop for collaborating artists, educators, museum staff, and visitors exploring new ideas, generating unusual exhibits, and participating in construction based activities that blur the lines between science, art, and technology. They direct the PIE (Playful and Inventive Explorations) Institute, a network to support museum educators, exhibit developers, and after-school educators to integrate playful approaches into science and art activities.
