Biography

Making a Maker Mindset

Elementary students can learn to code and build robots too! As we journey deeper into the 21st century we cannot imagine the jobs we are preparing our students for but we know creativity, grit and computer science will apply to all fields and students’ chances of success. How do we prepare them? By creating opportunities for them to creatively problem solve and never give up! These mindsets can be developed through engineering design challenges and cross curricular project based learning. To add the computer science component BirdBrain Tech has developed Hummingbird Robot kits. That elementary & high school students can build and code. Can this additional component develop persistent and creative problem solvers? Come find out how our technology educator, administrators, librarian and teachers collaborate to make it happen!
