STEM Scale Up with Hummingbird Bit
Understand your Hummingbird Bit kits better, and discover what you can do with them! Join Jolie Pelds from the Iowa Science Center and Kelsey Derringer from BirdBrain Technologies for this live webinar. We’ll explore the materials included in the STEM Scale Up Grant maker cabinet awarded to schools across Iowa.
This webinar will focus especially on the Hummingbird Bit Robotics Kit (made by BirdBrain), and how it can be used with other maker cabinet materials. Kelsey will also cover features of the Hummingbird Bit, how to use it with different technology options (laptops, Chromebooks, tablets, iPads, and smartphones), demonstrate the available free online resources from BirdBrain, and discuss projects and classroom integration strategies.
This webinar is best suited for Iowa teachers who have received the STEM Scale Up Grant maker cabinet for 4th grade and up, for the most recent award year, 2019. Teachers who received their cabinet prior to 2019 should tune in on December 10th as that information will be more relevant. No prior experience with coding or Hummingbird necessary! All are welcome.
