Libraries are about discovery. Giving people a safe and comfortable place to dream, think, and create is very important because it gives them a chance to explore various technologies and educational opportunities that they can use to enrich their lives. STEAM education refers to teaching and learning, mostly hands-on, in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics.
Learn in this webinar how St. Petersburg College’s Innovation Lab managed to incorporate the STEAM education framework via their well-received and grant supported Maker Boot Camp. In the first Maker Boot Camp, children between 10 and 14 years old learned video game design, how to build a synthesizer and control sounds/voltage with littleBits, 3D design/printing, robotics, basic circuitry and electronics, virtual reality, creating holograms, and more. In this webinar:
- Understand what it takes to create and manage a collaborative learning space.
- Explore a variety of technologies and tools to help enhance learning.
- Learn how Maker Boot Camp was organized and how it continues to excite people of all ages.
- Realize the importance of partnering with businesses and other organizations.
