Come out and join a team from the Faculty of Education's Community Outreach Centre for an evening of exciting hands-on learning at our first ever Widget Workshop. Discover K-8 science and technology secrets by making several widgets of your own and discussing the concepts that make them work. We will share over 50 unique widget resources, from how to make a hoop glider to our famous Up & Down Dino. You will have an opportunity to make several different widgets appropriate to your grade and division and take home a 200+ page resource book.
