You've heard of the Maker Movement, why not come experience it first hand?  Stop by the Maker's Playground to explore a variety of hands-on tools and programs that you can use in your classroom to bring out the Maker in each of your students. Some of the tools you'll be able to try out include Makey Makey, Arduino, Sphero, littleBits, LEGO WeDo, and more!
