Excellent video and blog post on Maker Education by Jackie Gerstein
This coming summer I am getting the opportunity to teach a maker education camp for three weeks, half-days at a local elementary school. The descriptions for the three one-week workshops are:
- Circuit Crafts: Build glowing, sensing, and interactive circuit projects; make electronic stickers, circuit sketchbooks, circuit cards, and sewn circuits.
- Sweet Robotics: Make simple robotics using Popsicle sticks and LED lights; play with and build some robots with Makey Makey, littleBits, Hummingbird, and Modular Robotics.
- Toy Hacking: Take apart simple electronic toys to see how they work & then put them back together again creating a new toy; make an operation game.
I created a website in order to aggregate possible activities, resources, and tutorials; and as a means to promote the workshops to parents, so they can see examples projects that the kids will be working on. Below is a link to my website.
