Questions: Hacking the Computer Clubhouse Learning Model for Classrooms

Saturday, May 10 | 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | Grades 6 - 12

Back by popular demand!

Asking amazing questions is the driving force of scientific discovery — learners take ownership when they are the ones asking the questions and pursuing their interests. Using the Computer Clubhouse Learning approach, we will apply a hands-on model where learners tinker with questions through research, collaboration, and experimentation.

Co-led by a former Clubhouse coordinator and a current high school teacher, this workshop consists of a series of immersion activities that allow teachers to take on the role of active learners and explore how authentic questions can help drive student learning. Explore programs and practices built on the values of the do-it-yourself and maker movements, including tinkering, engineering, and tools such as Scratch, Makey Makey, and social media platforms. We'll share a question-based curriculum being piloted at the high school level, and discuss how this model may be adapted to other settings. Bring your curiosity and leave with more questions to ask!

Registration is limited to Teacher Partners and is required at least two weeks in advance. Free parking is available for this workshop.

Museum of Science

The Museum takes a hands-on approach to science, engineering and technology, attracting about 1.5 million visitors a year via its programs and 700 interactive exhibits. Founded in 1830, the Museum was first to embrace all the sciences under one roof. Highlights include the Thomson Theater of Electricity, Charles Hayden Planetarium, Mugar Omni Theater, Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, 3-D Digital Cinema and Butterfly Garden. Reaching 25,000 teens a year worldwide via the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, the Museum also leads a 10-year, $41 million National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network of science museums. The Museum’s “Science Is an Activity” exhibit plan has been awarded many NSF grants and influenced science centers worldwide. Its National Center for Technological Literacy® aims to enhance knowledge of engineering and technology for people of all ages and inspire the next generation of engineers, inventors, and scientists. The Museum is ranked #3 by Parents Magazine in its list of the country’s “Ten Best Science Centers. For more information, visit mos.org.
