Marcus told his story about the creative process to a group of educators at the first Engaged Exchange. This was a Salon hosted by the Teacher2Teacher community at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in partnership with the Gates Foundation. Marcus gave an engaging talk about his experience learning at an Inquiry-based school and how that has opened his world to the possibility of seeing things from all perspectives, thinking in 3D. He spoke about his school math project led him to the school maker space and then to his work with the Department of Making and Doing.
