Book Study Invent to Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom

MSiC Book Study: Invent to Learn

Program Detail

Picture a lazy summer day in your mind’s eye and you are likely to see children building tree forts and go carts, or designing telephones and musical instruments from boxes and cans. Making, tinkering, and engineering are powerful learning experiences for humans; encouraging creative problem solving and collaboration. Sylvia Libow Martinez and Gary Stager, Ph.D. believe that by bringing the maker movement into our classrooms, teachers can create a mindset for learning powered by their students’ personal expressions of intellect.

Come join us for lively online discussions as we delve deeper into the maker movement and its potential impact on student performance and teaching practice. All sessions will take place online through our Google Classroom platform. For your convenience, the book study will be conducted asynchronously with convenient access for participants.

Location: MathScience Innovation Center via Google Classroom
