Events and workshops

Design and 3D printing with Tinkercad

Date: Thursday December 10th, 2020, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Language: English

Description: During this interactive workshop, you will learn how 3D modeling and printing works.
Tinkercad allows you to create innovative 3D designs using simple shapes and group them together to have a more complex object. You will explore model, geometry and measurements as well as mathematical transformations such as translation, rotation, etc. This program is a great way to teach math, as well as problem solving and the design process. By the end of the session, you will have created a 3D model of a holiday decoration!

Who: For teachers in grade 5 to 12.

Location: Online, in the comfort of your home.

Cost: Free!

Kindercoding (Introduction to coding with Beebot and Scratch Jr)

Date: Thursday January 21st, 2021, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Language: English

Description: Coding is not only for teens!

Beebots takes programming / robotics concepts and simplifies them for young children. The Beebot robot is now available online with multiple backgrounds to create different scenarios / goals for the beebot to accomplish.

Scratch Jr is the simplified form of Scratch! In this interactive workshop, you will learn how to create an animation using blocks of code.

Both of these methods are great introductions to programming for young children and meet the coding requirements of the new math curriculum!

Prerequisite: Download the software of Scratch Jr here.

Who: For teachers in grade K to 3.

Location: Online, in the comfort of your home.

Cost: Free!

TinkerCAD Codeblocks: a new 3D design concept!

Date: Thursday March 11th, 2021, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Language: English 

Description: During this interactive workshop, you will learn how 3D printing works and we will present a new way to create 3D models using Tinkercad Codeblocks.

Tinkercad Codeblocks allows you to create innovative 3D designs using the basics of coding with an easy to learn program that utilizes block programming. You will explore pattern, repetition, geometry and coordinates as well as mathematical transformations such as translation, rotation, etc. This new software is a great way to teach math in an innovative way and incorporate the new coding curriculum at the same time. By the end of the session, you will have created a 3D mandala model!

Prerequisite: You must create an account to design with TinkerCAD. Go to tinkercad.com/join 

Who: For teachers in grade 5 to 12.

Location: Online, in the comfort of your home.

Cost: Free!

Create Augmented Reality with CoSpaces

Date: Thursday April 22nd, 2021, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Language: English

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.

Location: Online, in the comfort of your home.

Cost: Free!

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.

Language: English

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.
