Walnut Creek, Calif., Wednesday, September7, 2016 -- After a successful launch in Palm Springs and a stop at ISTE 2016 in Denver, the CUE STEAMpunk playground will be part of the CUE 2016 Fall Conference, to be held October 28-29 at American Canyon High School in Napa Valley. Brought to you by CUE, with support from Apple, the CUE STEAMpunk playground will be open on Friday, October 28, only, and access to the space is included with registration. More info at fall.cue.org.
The CUE STEAMpunk playground allows conference attendees to engage in hands-on sessions featuring tools like robots and flying drones, Minecraft, 3D printing, coding and programming as well as give-away, “quick start” lesson plans that work for all grade levels from Kindergarten through college. Attendees will learn alongside Apple Distinguished Educators and CUE STEAMpunks.
Jon Corippo, CUE Director of Academic Innovation, explains the draw of the playground: “Educators know the value of the STEAM subjects -- Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math -- but they seldom get to experience all the innovations and cool things that are available in these areas. Having a space for educators to get in and do some hands-on work alongside top STEAM leaders means that they will take that enthusiasm and knowledge back to their classrooms to inspire and reach their students.”
The CUE 2016 Fall Conference does sell out quickly. To find out more information or to register, visit www.fallcue.org.
