Making Possibilities Workshop May 15th

Making Possibilities Workshop - Thursday May 15th

The Maker Education Initiative (“Maker Ed”) is delighted to host the first annual Making Possibilities Workshop for educators on Thursday, May 15, 2014 at Intel’s Headquarters in Silicon Valley.  This day-long workshop will provide the opportunity for educators to explore various approaches to implementing making as a strategy to engage youth in science, technology, engineering, math, arts, and learning as a whole.

Maker Ed is targeting both formal and informal educators, particularly those in Title 1 public schools or at youth serving organizations that serve low-income populations.  The Making Possibilities Workshop is a first step to bringing making into education in creative ways!  The workshop will foster discussion and collaboration, in addition to allowing educators to take part in hands-on making experiences, understand models of making programs and makerspaces, and connect with other maker educators in the field.
