You are invited to attend UNCG’s Learning Factory Summer Camp Maker Faire on July 17 and 24.

The UNCG School of Education’s TQP grant, Transforming Teaching Through Technology, in partnership with Guilford County Schools and Winston Salem Forsyth County Schools, is sponsoring The Learning Factory Summer Camp for select students from those districts in grades 1 – 8. The camp for middle grades students is July 13-17 and the elementary school camp is July 20-24. Classroom teachers from the partner districts will lead hands-on activities in the SELF Design Studio as campers learn about story elements, phases of the moon, weather, character perspective and point of view, slope and coordinate planes, and the culture of masks.

To celebrate the campers’ projects, Maker Faires will be held in the front lobby of the UNCG School of Education Building on Friday, July 17, 11:15 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. (middle grades projects), and on Friday, July 24, 11:15 a.m. -12:30 p.m. (elementary school projects).

Join the campers on one or both of these dates and see the projects created during the Learning Factory Summer Camp.

UNCG’s School of Education was awarded the five-year, $7.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The grant furthers UNCG’s efforts to emphasize technology integration across all teaching fields as well as recruit, train and support more Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)  teachers. The grant was one of just 24 Teacher Quality Partnership grants awarded by the Department of Education.
