Workshop 1: “Making with Kids to Foster STEAM Education”

Learning goals: Hands-on experiences with simple maker tools and projects with children for beginners and insights into maker education approaches and experiences with Maker Days for Kids.

Description: Some of Europe’s leading experts on making with children will share their experiences and different approaches within this joint workshop. The workshop will include presentations about teacher education within makerspaces at Graz University of Technologies (AT) as well as a short introduction about the first Maker Days for Kids in August 2018 for children aged 10-14 years. Participants will work with a set of tools and smaller maker projects. For example they can work with an BBC:MicroBit or an Ozobot for educational purposes. The examples shown were especially prepared for an open learning setting within a huge maker space environment. Interactive discussions will be the base to develop own future implementations.

Participants: This workshop is planned for beginners within the field of making with children. Please bring your mobile advices (phone, tablet, computer) into the workshop, if possible. Max. 26 people.
