Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Attendees will see examples of student-created curriculum-based physical-digital projects made in a classroom and/or makerspace. A variety of grade levels, subject areas and media types will be represented. Attendees will also see practical applications of the BBC micro:bit and Arduino in these types of projects.

Interactive student projects using these technologies have been chosen by educators and shared at state-level conferences in including CUE, MASSCUE, ICE, MACUL and others.
