We love seeing the things educators and their classes invent – they bring us closer to a world built by everyone exploring their ideas and reinventing the things around us.
Makey Makey is perfect for the classroom. Students can invent projects that combine the tactile materials of the classroom with the coding projects they’re creating on the computer to bring their creations to life. At Fair Chance Learning, we believe every student should have access to a computing device.
With the Makey Makey, students can make any conductive material act as the input device for a computer. Because it comes preprogrammed, students with no coding experience can use it and learn to experiment with it as they start to learn coding and create really great projects!
We believe that the Maker Movement is more than just robots, 3D printing, or STEM, or even building things. It allows students to become hardware engineers and solve real-world design challenges by providing a landscape that fosters curiosity and creates vibrant learners.
The Makey Makey Invention Literacy Workshop for Educators is a fun hands-on learning experience where you’ll learn how to teach Invention Literacy, Making, and Design Thinking using the award winning Makey Makey invention kit. We’ll explore how to teach circuits and conductivity using Makey Makeys and then put our skills to use designing your own inventions! Participants learn best practices and gain access to a multimedia training website that can be used later when working with your students or training others.
Join the Fair Chance Learning team as the exclusive Canadian training partner as we investigate coding and digital tools to help support educators in the delivery of exciting concept-based, competency-driven curriculum across Canada and North America! Participants will be engaged in challenging and fun activities while exploring evidence-based practice surrounding computational thinking and creative technologies. The Fair Chance Learning Team consists of experienced STEM Educators dedicated to discovering and sharing effective pedagogy, deeper learning and real-world connections.
It’s a one day (5 hours) workshop and participants walk away with a free Makey Makey and certificate of completion!
