Providing children with the right tools to build craft technologies engages them in the learning activity, increases their self-efficacy, broadens participation, and promotes gender balance. This workshop is designed for individuals interested in K-12 outreach, and scaling computer concepts and skills to a child-friendly level. Attendees will build basic craft technologies through a mediated hands-on experience, and leave with the fundamental skills necessary for introducing children to craft technology.
