If you're struggling with equipment and technology, this workshop will give you several ideas of how you can integrate coding into your classroom. In this workshop, we will explore a variety of off-screen activities that apply coding strategies, which will provide a foundational understanding for both you and your students.
Sandy Eix has a BSc in Physics from Waterloo, a BEd from Queen’s, and an MSc and PhD in Physics from SFU. She has been inventing exhibits, programs, and shows at Science World for over 20 years. Her job lets her play with all sorts of science and share her discoveries with kids of all ages; this year has been an amazing opportunity to revisit her coding roots and play with wonderful computational thinking tools and toys. When she’s not thinking about science education, she applies her curious mind to snowboarding, Cape Breton fiddle music, navigating East Vancouver by bicycle, and learning to speak French. She explores the world with her husband and daughter, and always has a maker-project on the go.
