Events and workshops
Create Augmented Reality with CoSpaces
Date: Thursday April 22nd, 2021, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Description: Create and explore augmented reality with your students! Adaptable to any subject and grade level, CoSpaces Edu allows students to create their own 3D creations, animate them with code, and explore them in augmented reality. With your smartphone or tablet and a MERGE-Cube, you can project your simulation into the real world. In this interactive workshop, you will learn how easy it is to add an image or simulation to the real world, and you will create a simulation of a natural habitat.
Note: to have the augmented reality experience you must have a MERGE-Cube. Otherwise, the simulation takes place through your computer screen. It is possible to print your own MERGE cube with this template: https://www.arvrinedu.com/post/merge-cube-printable
Prerequisite: You also need to create an account in Cospaces. Please follow the steps here.
Who: For teachers in grade 4 to 12.
Electrical Circuit Design with TinkerCAD Circuits and Arduino microcontroller simulations
Date: Thursday May 20th, 2021, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Description: During this interactive workshop, you will learn how to create electrical circuits with components such as LEDs, resistors and electrical circuit boards! You will also learn how to control these components with a virtual ARDUINO microcontroller. The microcontroller can be programmed with block coding (for beginners) or with C language (for more advanced).
Prerequisite: You must create an account to design with TinkerCAD. Go to tinkercad.com/join
Who: For teachers in grade 7 to 12.
Fun DIY Physics experiments
Date: Thursday June 10th, 2021, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Description: During this hands-on workshop, you will learn different physics concepts with fun experiments you can do at home or in the classroom! A list of material will be sent to you before the workshop if you want to try the experiments yourself during the workshop.
Who: For teachers in grade 3 to 6.
