Crafting, Coding and Circuitry (Workshop)

This workshop will be presented in an online format. 

Think of your classroom as a playground where children take risks, venture into uncharted waters, and engage in free-range play! This workshop will turn a makerspace into a playground for elementary education teachers to craft, code, and construct novel ways of thinking, teaching & tinkering by building interactive objects, creating wearable electronics, coding robots, & designing digital games. All activities will be connected to the Indiana Content Standards. Click here for Learning Outcomes.
