Code Your Maker Mashup: Tuesday July 18 to Wednesday July 19 (9:00am - 3:00pm)
Come find out all the possibilities for your school’s makerspace or innovative classroom! In our two-day workshop, participants will experience a maker challenge. We will begin with low-tech design challenges such as create your own arcade game or Rube Goldberg machine. As the workshop progresses, participants will be challenged to incorporate high-tech additions such as circuits, lights, sound or movement. On day two, participants will be instructed on basic coding skills and then use these skills to design a simple computer or robot animation to incorporate with their creation!
As participants experience the maker process as a learner, we will discuss how to implement maker projects in the classroom as a facilitator, such as safety considerations, parent and community involvement opportunities, and interdisciplinary planning. We will conclude by ideating on ways you can use maker challenges to teach 21st century learning skills such as design thinking, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking.
No previous experience with electronics or coding necessary.
