Speaking at UXPA Boston 2019 about teaching kids UX
It always feels a little magical to be surrounded by other UX researchers.
Despite having lived in the northeast US since 2014, this was my first UXPA Boston conference. I’d heard great things — that this regional gathering is on par with the international meeting I’ve attended a few times. And it’s true! Although it’s just a single day of programming, the quality of UXPA Boston speakers and connections was great.
I presented a 10-minute talk on teaching UX workshops to kids. (I am using the term workshop in the “teaching about UX” sense, not the “involve kids in UX research” sense. I don’t think anyone else is really doing the former!) I shared tips I’ve learned after participating in the local Girls in STEM event three years in a row. I also recently wrote for UserZoom on the same topic.
As always, I’d like to thank the conference organizers, sponsors, and fellow speakers for putting in the hard work. I hope to see you again soon!
