Join this webinar to learn the basics of starting a makerspace in an early learning center and designing developmentally appropriate projects that engage children in hands-on making and learning. We will discuss the maker movement and its implications for early childhood education and the key physical components of a makerspace before diving into some project examples and a discussion of tools and materials that can facilitate deeper engagement with tinkering, engineering, and creating open-ended products. We will also touch on the mindsets that are needed for this type of work and the value of creating experiences that foster those mindsets in young children.
In this webinar you will learn how to:
- Understand the value of the Maker Movement in Early Childhood.
- Understand the components needed to create a makerspace.
- Design initial make space projects appropriate for Early Childhood.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
