Makey Makey Skill Swap

Date: May 17, 2018 at 4:00-6:00pm 
Fee: $15 per person 
Location: Scott Family Amazeum

This Skill Swap will focus on the creative tool called Makey Makey. We’ll explore how you can start inventing with a Makey Makey out of the box and how you and your students can take it further by combining it with Scratch to experiment with basic programming. Join us as we investigate this simple tool for incorporating technology into the classroom that has endless creative possibilities!

Skill Swaps are workshops where you can learn new tinkering skills and build upon the skills that you already have while experimenting first hand with ideas and materials. 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.
