Description

Back by popular demand!

Asking amazing questions is the driving force of scientific discovery — learners take ownership when they are the ones asking the questions and pursuing their interests. Using the Computer Clubhouse Learning approach, we will apply a hands-on model where learners tinker with questions through research, collaboration, and experimentation.

Co-led by a former Clubhouse coordinator and a current high school teacher, this workshop consists of a series of immersion activities that allow teachers to take on the role of active learners and explore how authentic questions can help drive student learning. Explore programs and practices built on the values of the do-it-yourself and maker movements, including tinkering, engineering, and tools such as Scratch, Makey Makey, and social media platforms. We'll share a question-based curriculum being piloted at the high school level, and discuss how this model may be adapted to other settings. Bring your curiosity and leave with more questions to ask!
