How might we learn computational thinking by creating and making physical objects? Why does this approach help bridge the equity gap we often see in computer science? We'll discuss these questions during this hands on workshop. You'll leave with a digital file you can use with a 3D printer, vinyl cutter, laser cutter, embroidery machine, or other maker tool to create a physical object that includes code you can touch. We'll briefly look at Scratch, Tinkercad Code Block, and Turtle Stitch as options. Leave inspired to Create a T-Shirt, Cookie Cutter, Zipper Pull, Earrings, or other other fun artifacts using Code you can Touch.
