What exactly are the 21st century skills children need to develop in order to become informed global citizens? This is a key question posed by parents and school leaders, especially in today’s world of shifting academic expectations, new educational standards and evolving technologies.
Westport Library’s award-winning MakerSpace will soon play gracious host to Level Up Village’s “Global Inventors” 3D printing class. The course takes place the week of July 27th and will be the first LUV course to run at a library. Libraries that sign up to run Global Inventors will each receive a complimentary Cube® 3D printer.
Schools that sign up for LUV’s Global Inventors after-school course receive a complimentary 3D printer – a great way to start building a new Maker Space. In the course, K-9 students learn to harness the power of 3D printing to develop prototype inventions in a real, global context.
