Educational initiatives that emphasize making, engineering, and tinkering are becoming increasingly popular in K-12 education. Makerspaces, fab labs, and design classes are bringing with them exciting new tools, technologies, and curricula. But what does it truly mean to learn by making? During this interactive workshop session participants will be introduced to the notion of learning by making by engaging in a series of hands-on activities. Designed as a primer for maker-centered learning, this workshop session will introduce the maker capacities of looking closely, exploring complexity, and finding opportunity and set a foundation for participants to build on through the rest of their Making Across the Curriculum conference experience. Capacity: 10
