Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Our purpose is to encourage teachers to employ the MAKER mindset and ecourage students to use their imagination and MAKE their learning visisble. We will share a model lesson, share ideas and projects from our school, brainstorm in small groups to come up with ideas for attendees classes, and share out with the group.
