Today, Baruch College had an amazing event called Creative Inquiry Day located in the Gym from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm. Many creative Baruch students made various projects including natural sciences, social science, arts and humanities, pubic affairs, business and maker hub. It was very interesting because it was something new and I learned a lot. It was amazing to see Baruch students had done these amazing projects.
Here is a picture of how it was set up:
I signed up for Maker Hub to receive more information about it. It’s a Felid Center creativity for technology, design, and entrepreneurship. It’s mostly hands on learning using robots, 3D printers, as well as low tech creative materials like Legos and Play Doh. The project was a mini vending machine, called Walking on Plastic by MD Abir Choudhury.
In the business group, there were presenters for Avon. Semona Skvirsky and Agelica Rosero had done an amazing job explaining how Avon, the company for women, became successful as it is now. Women business owners! For those who don’t know, Avon was just a fragrance company, and the creator wanted women to sell the product to other women. My aunt used to sell Avon products herself! Avon then started making products such as makeup and clothing. Avon is now the largest direct-selling organization.

One of my favorite one was The Mini Museum of Infinite Possibilities by Rebecca Vicente which was an interactive project. She had a mini book that had many artists that inputted in her small book since the beginning of 2017. Around 18 people have inputted their art into her mini book and it was interesting to see. She also asked me to put something on her poster!

Here is what I added ( I just drew the logo of The Mini Museum of Infinite Possibilities but more of a floral look)
It was a great experience, and I also advise other to come to Creative Inquiry Day next year as well. Also, had delicious cookies!
