Making Makers - Bringing Makerspaces into Schools

Repeats every day 2 times.
Thursday, June 15, 2023 - 8:00am to 4:00pm

This two day course is designed as an introduction to many of the tools and skills that can be taught and learned in a school Fab Lab or Makerspace. The items to be covered have been selected because they can most readily be implemented in a school environment, and typically do not overlap with a school's existing Career & Technical Education program.

Attendants will be given time to work with these devices themselves, and be able to take away samples and experiences. 

 

The program will run both days from 8am - 4pm, with a break for lunch.

Instructor Bio: 

Corey is a teacher, learner and maker. Presently, he is teaching Chemistry at Daniel Hand High School in Madison, CT. Corey has over a decade of experience teaching science in high school classrooms. As an extension of this interest in science, he taught himself electronics, and then to program with Arduino. When the school where he taught installed a Fab Lab, Corey learned how to use the machines through experimentation. Then was in the second American Picademy in San Mateo, California. He was one of a tiny number of active teachers to ever attempt and graduate from Fab Academy, the intensive course from the Fab Foundation. He used these skills to push students to design their own musical instruments, circuit boards, furniture and much more in his Engineering courses, Science Olympiad and First Robotics club.
