This lecture has been canceled. Apologies for any inconvenience.

It’s time to PLAY! Academy of Play is a chance for adults to explore the history, science, and social impact of toys, games, and play. No need to leave the kids at home: the simultaneous Academy of Play Kids’ Club is a chance for youth to build their own toys and connect with Puget Sound's most imaginative creators.

What role does gender stereotyping of toys play in the development of a child’s physical, cognitive, and creative skills? As major retailers move away from gender-based marketing in stores, what does this mean for the future of toys?

Panelists include Kristina Adams, researcher and graphic designer; Adriana Moscatelli, Founder of Playworks; and Allen Rickert, owner Top Ten Toys - Greenwood.
