Pandora's Makerspace: Teaching Design Thinking and Tinkering

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session is about Design Thinking, Maker Activities and Tinkering in the Elementary Grades. Our emphasis is on understanding the importance of learning through hands-on, developmentally appropriate activities for young children in the context of modeling and promoting design thinking through play and structured dialog. It's really about the thinking processes and every child should have access to quality experiences and design challenges! Easily acquired, inexpensive materials will be used for most activities to fit every teachers’ budget. Come to this session ready to collaborate! Resources will be shared.
