A Festival of Designing, Inventing, and Learning
Friday, October 22 from 4:00 - 6:00
panels - exhibits - construction zone
workshops - directions
A new generation of computerized construction kits, such as LEGO MINDSTORMS,
are opening up new possibilities for playful learning. Kids (and adult hobbyists) can now build creatures,
contraptions, and other creations that once required an advanced engineering background. MindFests are
celebrations of the creativity unleashed by these new technologies.
The initial MindFest brought together educators, kids, hobbyists, and researchers. All had an opportunity to show off their own creations and inventions in the MindFest exhibition space.
Panel discussions focused especially on the role of "tinkering" in learning and creativity and the ways new technologies are transforming how we think and learn.
