Webinar: Teaching the A in STEAM with Tinkercad

Presenters: Kellyanne Mahoney & Dr. Nettrice Gaskins
ALL Welcome – FREE to all!
0.5 Professional Hours Available    Pre-registration Required


How can Tinkercad, the free, easy-to-use app for 3D design, electronics, and coding, be used in the classroom to infuse the arts with other subjects in the production of meaningful projects? Kellyanne Mahoney, Youth Program Specialist at Autodesk, and Dr. Nettrice Gaskins, artist, educator, and BUILDer in Residence at the Autodesk Technology Centers, will share real-life examples of how teachers can use Tinkercad as a creativity tool to align their lessons with both ISTE Standards and National Core Art Standards. They will also explore Nettrice’s design process as she shares how she used Tinkercad to design a giant abacus, which is part of a large-scale public art project meant to transform ordinary public places into exciting learning environments that help children get an early start in mathematics. Through this presentation, Kellyanne and Nettrice hope to engage the audience in a discussion about how design thinking, creativity, communication, and artistic skills can deepen and reinforce math and science understanding.
