From the Speaker:
World problems and the need for human expertise to solve those problems demand more creativity. Opportunities abound for the individual who can integrate creative thinking skills with critical thinking skills. The creative imperative and the creative opportunity urge us to improve creativity education for students. We can help students become more creative, and as a result we can enhance their personal satisfaction and their abilities to solve the pressing problems of our times.
Kathleen Harness will give an overview of the Etoys programming language and the EtoysIllinois.org website.
Join us for our MSTE Friday Lunch with presenter, Dr. John Gardner (from Oregon State University) on accessible math and graphics.
Dr. John Gardner will also be giving presentations on campus Wednesday and Thursday this week. It may be helpful to attend some of his other presentations so you can come to the Friday Lunch with questions for Dr. Gardner. Of course, if you are unable to attend any of his other presentations, you are still welcome to join us for Friday Lunch; we just want to make sure everyone knows about his other presentations.
Rita Davis will share her experiences teaching Math/Robotics sessions at the Uni Summer Camp. This camp serves 4th - 6th graders from our local community and actively recruits children underrepresented at Uni and in STEM fields.
