STEM Teaching for the 21st Century: From Learning Targets to Curricular Units
This 5-day workshop provides participants with a comprehensive understanding of curriculum development and integration within makerspaces and educational fab labs. Using the FabLearn approach to maker education, the course deeply integrates theory and practice, addressing inquiry-driven, project-based learning in makerspaces and digital fabrication settings, as well as issues such as assessment and integration into broader school goals.
Over the course of the week, participants will develop a curriculum unit ready to implement in their school settings.

Teachers, school leaders, and maker education facilitators interested in integrating maker education into their schools. Teams of educators/administrators are highly encouraged to attend together.
