Event description

Description

The Lighthouse Creativity Lab is offering a two-day intensive workshop for educators eager to integrate making in school into their own practice.

Spend two days planning a K-12 making project or unit of your choice and leave with a project example made by you. While being immersed in a making environment, you will make and develop, test and troubleshoot the making curriculum or project of your choice for your K-12 classroom or school.

**Please Note!** All participants of this workshop are eligible for continuing education units (CEUs) from Sonoma State University. If you are interested in earning these credits, you MUST register for our workshop through the SSU website, and not through our Eventbrite page.
