Teacher & Learning: Above The Line
September 18, 2018

Join our very own Sarah Ryan, Nova Scotia Program Director, as she will be discussing the importance of Makerspaces for Education: Making Change with an Entrepreneurial Spirit, September 29th at the Teacher & Learning: Above The Line conference.

Sarah will highlight how makerspaces are an exciting and innovative way to encourage creative strategies and develop an entrepreneurial mindset early-on in youth. She will discuss the various ways to get-started– from first steps, promoting continuous growth, and long-term sustainability—all key components to creating a successful makerspace.

Makerspace and Maker Education concepts involve projects that align with curricula at all grade levels. These educational endeavours incorporate 21st century design-thinking; including rapid-prototyping, coding/robotics, crafting skills, multi-media, and much more! The collaborative learning that ensues encourages “start-up” ingenuity early on in life, resulting in future generations who are not limited in skill or ability and who will have the perseverance required to lead change and empower economic growth.

This is only one discussion at the two-day conference hosted by the South Shore Regional School Board:

September 28 & 29, 2018

Sept. 28 (5:30-9PM @Atlantica Oak Island Resort)

Sept. 29 (9AM-3:45 PM @Parkview Education Centre)
