The Amazeum will lead an exchange of making/tinkering based skills and hands-on activities in order to develop your own tinkering and implementation with your students. Workshops are designed with teachers in mind but out of school time providers and libraries are encouraged to attend. Skill Swaps are ADE-approved for professional development credit.
