Energized Educator Events

We hope you can join us for one of our upcoming Energized Educators events. These events are specifically designed as professional development opportunities for educators. Each event will include a different hands-on activity and chances to collaborate with other educators.

The Teacher Studio

February 15 – 4:30-5:30pm

The Teacher Studio is a hybrid learning community for educators interested in hands-on, maker-based learning. On the third Wednesday of each month, participants will make something together and share ideas for supporting maker-based learning experiences. Educators can join online via Zoom or in person at the Building for Kids. You can learn more on their website by clicking here!

This month, we’ll use photos and a sketchpad app to bring shadows to life!

This is a free event for all educators.
