June 22 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Learn how Googlers combine art and code with this week’s guest expert Jake Stambaugh! In this week’s M3, Jake will guide students through the process that Googler’s go through to create the Google doodles every day. Starting with a basic design, kids will learn how to take their ideas for a Google doodle and turn it into reality. The lesson will teach the basics of programming using a tool called Scratch which uses programmable blocks. Kids will leave this lesson with a basic understanding of events, sequencing and loops, as well as an appreciation for how code can be used to create art.
M3 (Materials, Media, and Me) is Assemble’s summertime Saturday program, running from 1pm-3pm. It’s a free workshop for kids ages 5-10 to get to know the material world around them!
M3 uses an educational approach known as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). STEAM-based learning explores the similar ways that scientists, makers, and artists approach projects. At M3, students learn through experience as local experts guide them through the design process. Each week, a different artist or technologist will introduce a material, show students how they use the material, and lead them through a project.
