Maker Educator Boot Camp 

An intensive course for educators who want to learn maker skills, technologies and teaching methodologies.

Maker Education is an interest-lead pedagogical style where learners design, plan, prototype and iterate on their very own physical projects. In this program participants will learn Maker skills, principles, tools & technologies by doing just that – building projects – in our downtown maker space. No previous technology experience is required, we’ll take you from the ground up!

 

This program has a focus on high tech making, including Arduino, Internet of Things, and Digital Fabrication. You will learn these skills through hands-on application by building real Internet of Things projects.

 

On completion of this course participants will be familiar with the following tools and technologies:

  •  2D & 3D design (TinkerCad & Vector)
  • Digital fabrication using 3D printers and laser cutters
  • Arduino programming
  • Basic web dev (HTML & CSS)
  • Internet of Things with the Particle Photon
  • Soldering

 

Aside from technical skills, participants of Maker Educator Boot Camp will also learn how to design and facilitate programs that encourage learners to:

  • exercise genuine creativity within real design constraints
  • brainstorm ideas and critically assess their viability
  • plan, prototype, fail fast, and move forward
  • be resourceful and use their network (online & off) to find answers
  • tap in to their own interests, share knowledge, and collaborate with others
  • embed learning by working on real physical projects
