Event Details

Classrooms are fast becoming abuzz with Beebots, Littlebits, Makey Makeys, and coding academies. With the digital technologies and design technologies curriculum upon us, and a global focus on STEM and innovation, navigating this landscape can be daunting. It's time to think more deeply about the learning we are wrapping around these tinker tools and explore ways we can engage students in deeper learning and develop transferable STEM Ed skills for the future.

What will I learn from it?   

Let's work smarter, not harder when it comes to embedding STEM into your classroom practice. You will walk away from this workshop with the skills and strategies to help your students make what's next in this ever-changing world. Places will fill quickly for this whole-day workshop, so please register today.
