Abstract

Learning should never be boring. This is an easy stance to take, but we often see that it is not easily accomplished in public schools. A partnership between Lesley’s Makerspace and Cambridge’s Tobin Montessori has reconceptualized science activities that explore sound, light, and digital waves through making. Join us for this hands– on re–creation of elementary science activities and experience how making inspires playful learning. These public school educators will share their instructional moves that foster learning through tinkering and play.
