Bring the POWER of Making into your Classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

Welcome! The Maker Movement is not just about making stuff but making meaning  (@Laurafleming). Our 7Gr Spanish teachers were willing to give the maker magic a try by bringing the Spanish + Scratch + Makey Makey Project to their classrooms. Students had to code a basic game in Scratch that included audio recordings and text in Spanish and also, design a game controller with Makey Makey kit to match. The student payoff was HUGE! These types of projects can easily work cross-curriculum.  Attendees will get hands-on experience walking through this process! You too can feel the power of the MAKER!

Student Presentation: Basic Computer engineering and youth entrepreneurship through technology
Limited Capacity seats available

In my section, I would like to teach basic computer engineering through Arduino, and how it can be taught in schools. Also, I would like to show how basic computer engineering can influence and inspire young kids to become more interested in the subject and gain useful tools.

Cruising into Coding with Pro-Bots
Limited Capacity filling up

Thanks to a grant from the MCPE Dale Street School has been running a pilot program integrating 50 Pro-Bots into fourth and fifth grade classrooms. Are you looking for a robotic to use in your classroom that doesn't require an app or device to run it? Pro-bots are the answer for you! Pro-Bot is a turtle robot, cleverly disguised as a race car. This device offers students an enticing, engaging, and hands-on experience with programming and geometric concepts. Pro-Bot commands are entered via a set of arrow and number keys mounted on the back of the device. Plan a route for Pro-Bot using distance and degree measures on the keypad controls. Come to my session to learn about these robots, their basic functions, how to program them, and PLAY!
