Learning Through Play Conference

Ryan will join colleagues from the Lego Foundation to present about tinkering at the Learning through Play conference at Billund Library in Denmark. 

Here's the description of the workshop from the organizers. 

"The creator culture is popular in many years in many Danish libraries. And it is not without reason: the willingness of the MAKER movement to share knowledge, skills and ideas is in accordance with the public library's values.

The purpose of the conference is to dive into the essence of MAKING, its societal potential and the skills that the professional professionals must possess in an exploratory and experimental environment."

Lighthouse & Lodestar School Maker Faire

We'll be sharing a few of our recent experiments with micro-exhibits and computational tinkering with Lighthouse and Lodestar students at their School Maker Faire. 

Here's the description of the entire event:

At Lighthouse and Lodestar, we have a long tradition of recognizing and celebrating Making. To support our students as they finish their independent projects in different elective classes, we have set up a School Faire at our campus. Students will be facilitating hands-on activities with guests and will showcase their work in our Making, Programming and Robotics classes. This is also a day of celebration in honor of Cesar Chavez.

Frugal Tinkering @ Fablearn 2017

Ryan will be collaborating with Angela Sofia Lombardo for a hands-on workshop at Fablearn 2017 where participants will work together to build dancing robots using servo motors, LEDs, recycled materials and a special ‘low floor’ set up for Arduino that allows to experiment, discover and create without struggling with breadboards. Participants will use a visual programming environment (ScratchX) to control the Arduino and to add some music to their creations. 

Check out a link to all the workshops here (we're "Workshop F")
