Lending Library Training Session @transformED West
November 18, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Event Description | Attend a crash course in our Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation STEAM Library and then borrow class sets of resources including:
Makey Makey, Hummingbird, Finch, Osmo, Beebot, Kindles, littleBits Class Kit, littleBits Gizmos & Gadgets, littleBits Smart Home, littleBits Arduino, SPECK, Robot Turtles, Puzzlets, and more!
Background | Through the generosity of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation (PPF) and the Citrone Family, the Allegheny Intermediate Unit has established a STEAM Lending Library, the first of its kind in the nation. The PPF STEAM Lending Library was in response to educators who expressed a desire to use newer technologies with students but who often lacked the awareness, knowledge and/or financial means to move forward. Teachers in AIU districts are free to borrow classroom sets of resources at no cost.
PLEASE NOTE: This is the second of four(4) quarterly sessions. Each session will be held on the day that the loan period opens for that particular month, so you should be able to reserve an item and take it with you (based on availability).
While registration is open to all, currently only the 42 AIU “Member Districts” may borrow supplies.
