The FAB PLAY Summer Institute is open to all educators and organizations hoping to deepen their experience of teaching and learning in Fab Labs and Makerspaces and share their expertise back to the larger community. Although there will be some sessions on machines and techniques, the overall objective of the institute is for all participants and presenters to learn from each other and obtain new ideas to implement in their own space. Topics include: Setting up Makerspaces & Fab Labs, Low Tech Tools and Techniques, PBL Projects, Student documentation, Maker-Centered Learning, CS and Computational & Design Thinking, Micro-controllers & Coding (Arduinos, Raspberry PI, Micro Bits) Electronics & Simple Circuits, Digital Media, and last but not least, Digital Fabrication Machines (Laser Cutter, Vinyl Cutter, CNC Mill, 3D Printing).
