Why should you come along – If you are are an educator, teacher, volunteer or parent based out of Melbourne with interests in coding, electronics, robotics then this is an opportunity you might consider checking out. At the upcoming meetup we will explore some creative learning techniques, familiarize ourselves with key STEM learning platforms, talk about creating / making in the classroom and possibly also hear from other experienced teachers, educators, volunteers who work with kids across different related STEM disciplines. So if you are looking to get your kids involved with coding, electronics, robotics, etc. in class and don’t know where to go then this is an opportunity you might consider taking up. Our sessions are absolutely FREE to attend, are run by volunteers who have been running code clubs here in Melbourne for over two years now and are designed to help guide you on your own STEM learning journey. You will also learn about free online STEM learning resources which you can use with your kids in class, at home, coding / electronics / robotics kits that we use with kids across our code clubs and how you can start a makerspace at home or in your class on a shoestring (just like how we did it)!!!
What can you learn at our sessions – At our sessions you can choose to Scratch (https://scratch.media.mit.edu) which is a free tool for exploring computational creativity by programming interactive media (like stories, games, animations, and simulations). Kids use Scratch to design and share their creations with others online, used by millions of people all around the world. In addition we might also work on the the BBC micro:bit (https://microbit.org), explore the Arduino electronics platforms, explore some BBC micro:bit electronics kits which our kids use at the code club, tinker with some BBC micro:bit robotics kits and possibly also dabble with other creative learning tools, enablers out there.
Who are we – We are a bunch of volunteers, educators, parents who are passionate about creative learning for kids. We are passionate about supporting the growth of our local volunteer/educator community with a focus on creative learning techniques that can be used for kids of all ages. If you want to learn with and from each other, share ideas and strategies for supporting computational creativity in all its forms, then we hope to see you here in person at an upcoming meetup!!!!! You can check out our code club at – www.altonanorthdojo.com.au and www.docklandsdojo.com.au.
Who is this meetup for – This meetup is for :
– The educator who is excited or passionate about STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Medicine) education for kids and wants to learn more about creative learning opportunities out there.
– The parent who is excited about what STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Medicine) has to offer but is terribly confused on where to start, what tools to invest in or how they might navigate the different options available out there
– The teacher who wants to support computational creativity in the classroom and beyond, helping learners—from elementary school to high school, across curricular areas and settings—imagine, program, and share with Scratch
Where is the meetup being held – The meetup is being held at the Altona North Community library ( Altona North Community Library, Corner of Millers Rd & McArthurs Rd Altona North, Melbourne ) on the 5th of October 2019 between 1000 – 1200 hrs AEST.
