MAKER EDUCATOR EXCHANGE PROGRAM

8

Weeks

Mentors:

Maker Educator Exchange Program

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 as part of the Maker Educator Boot Camp in fall, and will then have the opportunity to apply these skills as a mentor at our kids March Break Camp.

 

No previous technology experience is required, we’ll take you from the ground up.
