Educator Session - Creating a STEAM/Makerspace in Classroom 1.0

Science and Technology Summer Camps UOIT  []

Wondering what “Makerspace” is all about?  This introductory session will include how to create a Maker environment in your class, school or commons.  Curriculum connections will be addressed in all topics.

  • 3D printing
  • Basic circuitry activities – paper and sewn circuits, squishy circuits
  • Technological problem solving – design and build, basic tool use
  • MakeyMakey and Scratch, Robotics devices, coding overview
  • Introduction to Green Screen technology
  • Other topics as interested


UOIT Faculty of Education Summer Workshops focus on three man areas:

  • Coding and Minecraft in the Classroom
  • LEGO Robotics
  • Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM)

Workshops provide teachers with the background they need to integrate these topics into their classrooms. Through hands-on, open-ended inquiry projects, participants will learn engineering concepts, and the connection between STEAM disciplines. Associated pedagogy/educational theory will be covered. The workshops are open to any Kindergarten to Grade 12 teacher, informal education providers, and volunteers or industry members interested in learning about Coding, Minecraft, STEAM and/or LEGO engineering.

Participants will:

  • Learn about the design process.
  • Explore the educational pedagogy and theory of using hands-on STEAM projects.
  • Investigate how to integrate other curriculum areas (math, science and literacy) through engineering-based projects.
  • Discuss and develop classroom management strategies.

Participants will leave with:

  • A collection of integrated classroom activities and lesson ideas.
  • Access to a website for sharing ideas.
  • Comfort level with Coding. Minecraft, STEAM and/or LEGO Robotics in the classroom.


  • Laptops, all LEGO kits and STEAM materials will be available during the workshop. Teachers may choose to bring their own computer and LEGO kits if they prefer, so they can take away models at the end of the session.
