Maker Parent Happy 1/2 Hour “Maker Moms” – Come and Chat About #Homeschooling + #Kids on Wed Night #makermoms #STEM #Education
Diana Eng and I will be part of a small panel of Maker Moms for this week’s Maker Parent Happy 1/2 Hour from Make: Community’s Family Maker Camp series. Join us on Wednesday night at 5:30-6pm PST for the live Zoom/FB event. You don’t have to be a mom to participate. We are all in this homeschool life together now as parents and we can help each other out — not only with ideas, but also support.
On the panel with Diana (top left) and myself (right), will be homeschooling moms Nathalie O’Donald from ladynod.com (bottom left) and Katie Rosa Marchese (bottom right), who is the wife of Mario “the Maker Magician” Marchese. Both of these women have a ton of experience in homeschooling and will be sharing their tips. We will also have Gillian Mutti and Katie Kunde from Make: Community.
It will be a casual event (bring your favorite beverage) broadcasted live via Zoom and the Family Maker Camp Facebook page. We can all chit chat about projects to make with our kids, what’s working and what’s not right now in homeschooling and anything else! We will also be answering questions too.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
