Maker Mobile Workshops

posted Nov 9, 2019, 11:30 AM by Debbie Lloyd

Dear OLMC Parents and Guardians,

This week, all students K-6 will participate in a Maker Mobile workshop led by University of Ottawa. Funding is being covered by donations and there is no cost to parents. 

The uOttawa Maker Mobile is a Makerspace on wheels. Carrying the latest technologies, the Maker Mobile delivers fun hands-on learning activities to schools, complementing the school curriculum. The goal is to encourage creativity, problem-solving skills and interest in technology among everyone in our community.

Here is a list and description of the workshops:

Kindergarten: Bee-bot
Bee-Bot is an award-winning programmable robot, perfect for teaching orientation, sequencing, estimation and programming to young children. Students will have the opportunity to complete the challenge of programming their Bee-Bot to make its way through a maze.

Gr. 1-2: Codemaker programming and scratch
Students will learn to program their own interactive stories and games. In the process, they will learn to solve problems, design projects and express themselves creatively on the iPad.

Gr. 2/3-3/4: Little Bits
In this hands-on workshop, students will investigate circuits and computer logic using electronic building blocks called Little Bits, while learning some basic programming concepts.

Gr. 4/5-6: Create your own animal habitats in AR
Students will learn about different animal habitats and their characteristics. Then, they will create their own animal habitat in 3D using the online software CoSpaces. They will learn how to animate their animals and use simple coding concepts to make them move. Afterwards, using a Merge cube, they will see their habitat come to life with augmented reality!
