As an educator I believe in the value of engaging students in learning through hands on exploration and learning. I also believe that there is strength in education when we can build a community of learners in families and other amazing community members. I feel lucky to have witnessed this type of learning on Thursday and I hope that everyone had a great time making and creating! I saw low tech creations as students built a massive house structure and space needle out of cardboard, high tech engagement as students coded and designed and everything in between.
I will continue to work to support making at RES and I welcome all feedback and comments about this evening and/or ideas for future projects.
Thanks to all who attended this event!
