We are excited to join the Mobile Makerspace and Eduporium for a hands-on pre-conference workshop at NAEA.
What: Weaving Design and Computational Thinking Together to Build Future-Ready Art Students
Where and When:
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Museum Building, 265 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA 02139 (9:00 am –12:00 noon)
John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center (2:00 – 5:00 pm)
What: Join the AET and DIG Interest Groups for an exciting and informative pre-conference day. Start by traveling to the Makerspace and Game Lab at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), where participants will spend the morning exploring and learning. Professors and graduate students will showcase advancements developed in the Media Lab that bring computer science, art, and design together to build career skills for young learners. Then we will transition to an MIT Makerspace and work alongside professors and students to create an actual project using the STEAM skills of engineering and design. Travel back to Hynes Convention Center for lunch on your own, and the workshop will conclude in the convention center. Participants will take home $50 worth of STEAM kits in addition to the projects they build during the workshop. In the hands-on portion, local STEAM professionals will provide demos in a “choose your own learning adventure” style. Hands-on demos provided by FableVision/Reynolds Center, Eduporium, the Mobile Makerspace, and local STEAM educators. Lunch will be on your own.
