Join us for Breakfast at our open house on February 25, 2020 to learn about our new Professional Development programs offered by, The Center for Mathematics, Science and Computer Education.

New Professional Offering in Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality in your classroom.

 

We will share how to use games, game-based learning or Immersive technologies in the classroom with Rutgers' Game Research and Immersive Design unit. We'll explain the difference between Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality, and demonstrate inexpensive phone-based Virtual Reality options, and show some simple board games that can be adapted to a wide variety of topics.


Math Applications in the Classroom:

Struggles with Fractions, Affect and Engagement, Elementary and HS Algebra Science: Technology integration with NGSS, NGSS Assessments

Getting started with Next Generation Science  StandardsMaker Education Movement –Design, Creativity & Innovation

 

Event open to Elementary/ Middle/High School Administrators/Educators

When: February 25, 9:00- 11am

Where: Rutgers New Brunswick campus, Lifelong Learning Center, 3 Rutgers Plaza, New Brunswick, NJ 08901

 

Directions and parking information will be sent to registered participants 2 days before the workshop. 

Hope to see you there,

Cool Arduino for Non-Coders
Maker Series
Details
Expand

Do you like to tinker and make, but are intimidated by coding? Learn how to use Arduinos to do just about anything without ever writing a line of code by tapping into the vast amount of open source projects available to anyone.  You will learn how to read and design Arduino-specific circuit diagrams, identify and assemble circuit components, and integrate 3D printers and/or laser cutters to produce more effective products.  No prior experience necessary.  Each attendee will leave with a working product to share with their students.

COST:  $135 (Includes 1 complete starter kit valued at $35 and sample 3D prints/Laser cut parts to keep)
