The 2015-16 GenEdge Theme: Update for Spring!

Posted on Feb 4, 2016

The City Tech GenEdge College Theme is a simple, continuous invitation: we offer an open-ended idea you can use to inspire a single lesson in your class, a project in your club, or any number of pursuits you choose to execute. It is a voluntary effort that provides us all a chance to gather later to compare notes and celebrate the work of our students in response to our framing of the theme. This year, we explore knowing Brooklyn.

As you gather student work, be sure to document it in the following ways:

Digital Files

  • PDFs are ideal for online display and potential printing.
  • Word Docs are okay but they could be made into PDFs for greatest ease of archiving.
  • Posters are always welcome.
  • Videos need to be posted to YouTube and the links sent to us.
  • Coded sites need to be published so we have a link.

Physical Artifacts

  • Physical projects are welcome, we would love you to keep physical artifacts for the upcoming shows. There will be three exhibits across campus the week of April 11-15th, 2016.
  • Photos of work are fine if you have good lighting and framing. Most smart phones have good cameras if they are recent models.
  • Scans of two-dimensional work are better, but if you have no idea how to do that, ask your department CLTs to help you use your Konica Photocopiers to scan or contact our team at
