In April this year, Board Member, Paul Kallmes, led two days of workshops and talks with Finnish educators in Joensuu, Finland at SCIEFEST2015, a science conferencefor educators, innovators and families. On Nov. 12, our partner D. Cole took part in a Digital Fabrication conference at the Teacher Education Dept. at the University of Helsinki. Presented by the Innokas Network at the University, the session included talks by Paulo Blikstein and D. Cole, followed by hands-on workshops. Blikstein led teachers through an introduction to GoGoBoard, a low-cost open-source hardware device for educational robotics and scientific experiments. Cole shared paper circuitry materials and led educators through the connections to craft, coding, literacy and creative learning.
