About this Event

The Makerspace Playground is designed for educators who want to integrate innovative learning technology into their classroom. Join us as we get hands-on with some of today's most popular tech tools, including Spheros, drones, 3D printers, CNC machines, and more!

During this workshop, participants will learn the basics of makerspaces, including their educational benefits and the large variety of technologies they can harness to make these spaces havens for exploration and STEM-focused learning.

Throughout the workshop, participants will collaborate with peers, share ideas, and engage in hands-on activities to explore the possibilities of these innovative tools and technologies. By the end of the workshop, participants will have the skills and knowledge needed to bring these technologies into their own classrooms and inspire their students to explore the exciting world of makerspaces.

Join us for a fun and inspiring day of learning and exploration at the Makerspace Playground!

Lunch will be provided.
