Questions: Hacking the Computer Clubhouse Learning Model for Classrooms
Saturday, November 16 | 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | Grades 6 - 12
The ability to ask 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 will consist 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. Learners will 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 will 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!

One of the world's largest science centers and Boston's most attended cultural institution, the Museum introduces about 1.5 million visitors a year to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) via dynamic programs and hundreds of interactive exhibits. Founded in 1830, the Museum was first to embrace all the sciences under one roof. Its 10,000-square-foot Hall of Human Life draws on the latest discoveries in the life sciences to engage visitors in their own biology and health. Other highlights include the Thomson Theater of Electricity, Charles Hayden Planetarium, Mugar Omni Theater, Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, Butterfly Garden and 4-D Theater. Reaching over 20,000 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. Its National Center for Technological Literacy®’s engineering curricula have reached an estimated 79,200 teachers and 6.9 million students nationwide. Visit mos.org.
