BeConnected: Makerspaces for STEM/STEAM
April 1 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pmFree
Curiosity. Creativity. Capacity for Collaboration.
These are just a few of the hallmarks of today’s leaders and innovators. Cultivating these attributes in our students gives them a greater chance of success as adults and Makerspaces can get them started down that path. Join this week’s edition of the LTC’s Be Connected series to learn more about Makerspaces, as well as share your success stories about utilizing them in your classroom.
Be Connected is a new, weekly webinar series from the LTC focused on facilitating open discussions about pertinent topics within Illinois’ edtech community. Hosted by the LTC’s Chris Wherley and Eric Muckensturm, each session will focus on a specific topic and provide space for participants to ask and answer questions in a relaxed, supportive environment.
Each week will feature a different core topic and a fresh opportunity to connect with your peers. So, be sure to check the LTC events calendar routinely so that you can join in the discussion and Be Connected!
