Envision a classroom where students are actually working as engineers-a classroom where students imagine, invent, design, test, and collaborate to solve compelling problems. Picture a classroom where creativity flourishes and making mistakes is part of the learning process, as students discover for themselves what works and what does not. And imagine a classroom where every student walks away from a lesson with a working machine, pop-up, or another 3D object they designed and created themselves. Join FableVision Learning Team as we introduce and demonstrate how to create a compelling classroom maker space using easy CAD software for grades 3-8. The team share projects from simple to sophisticated using tools from hand fabrication to inexpensive 2D cutters to 3D printers and laser cutters. Actively participate making pop-ups, 3D solids, working machines and Smithsonian Invention kits and leave with something you created yourself. Come with your questions and your ideas, stop in for a quick visit or stay for awhile and create! (Presenter(s): Bill Norris, The Dot Connector, FableVision)
