A grape stem, a carrot, a metal jar lid and a ballerina sprite, a floating ghost sprite accompanied by classical music, a selfie & a sprite, a sprite falling through the black hole—what do these have to do with creativity & learning? Each of these items was integral to the projects designed by parents and children in Session 2 of the Family Creative Learning Workshop.
About the Learning
You HAD to be there. Just imagine the cooperation and collaboration & creativity as parents designed with parents and children designed with children—programming sprites from Scratch and controlling those sprites through the connection to MakeyMakey kits. Problem solving, trial and error, if-then, risk taking, critical and computational skills, pride in accomplishment, and the aforementioned cooperation and collaboration were needed and evident in the projects presented. And, most importantly, the gift of time parents are giving to children as they learn and work together on something new…it’s Priceless!
At the October 7 session families will brainstorm their final projects that will be on display at the October 21 Community Showcase. All are invited. Details to follow.
