Join us for an exciting half-day workshop designed for educators eager to introduce Circuit Playgrounds and block-based coding into their classrooms. This session caters to elementary educators, regardless of coding experience, offering a practical and accessible approach to technology integration. Although the target audience is elementary educators, anyone who is looking for an introduction to circuit playgrounds and block-based programming is welcome to attend. 

Participants will explore the versatility of Circuit Playgrounds as a teaching tool and delve into block-based coding, breaking down coding barriers. The focus will be on designing captivating classroom projects, from interactive displays to storytelling, fostering creativity and critical thinking in students.

Through hands-on activities, educators will gain confidence in programming Circuit Playgrounds and collaborating with peers to refine project ideas. This workshop aims to create a supportive   community of practice where educators can share ideas and best practices. Bring your enthusiasm for student engagement, and join us for a half-day of exploration, collaboration, and inspiration. No prior coding experience is required—just a willingness to revolutionize your teaching approach and empower students as creators of technology. If participants are interested in a deeper dive into programming with a text-based language, we encourage you to attend the Journey into Physical Computing with the Circuit Playground session.
