Project —

This Faber stage is again a great opportunity to do a very useful and interesting job and also to meet Snap, Snap4Arduino and MicroBlocks teams with an extensive worksheet. Our main goals are:

– To prepare materials for a teacher training course on creative learning with Snap! and its new social website: a place to store and share projects, an exchanging area between students, teachers and the entire Snap! community.

– To document connectivity between Snap!/Snap4Arduino projects, making classroom activity examples on modular projects, IoT and other device connections.

– To design and develop connection features between Snap!/Snap4Arduino projects and MicroBlocks devices.

Robolot on Saturday May 11 will be an important event to spread and share experiences with the educative community.
