Free Workshops

Workshop A:   Connect the Dots with DotBots – Put the STEAM into STEM (10:15 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.)

Presented by Green Mouse Academy:  Amy Erickson.   The children and youth in your out-of-school time programs are younger than Instagram, Twitter and YouTube. Making and sharing media is a part of their lives.  Join Green Mouse Academy and the Animation Chefs on an engaging digital storytelling journey. Learn basic stop-motion animation techniques in a unique way using inexpensive resources.

Workshop B:  A Taste for Thankfulness (11:45 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.)

Presented by FLIPANY (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth): Christine Matotek.

Out-of-school time professionals, now is your chance to be a chef, as FLIPANY’s Chef Christine guides you from recipe reading to delicious eating. During this fun, interactive healthy cooking workshop, learn simple ways to incorporate a gratitude lesson with nutrition. Walk away with a taste for thankfulness and a lesson plan to make this recipe at your out-of-school time program.

Extra Incentives

Fair attendees will receive a directory of more than 70 vendors that offer services and activities that will benefit and enrich out-of-school time programs.  Vendors include, but are not limited to, content-rich community-based organizations, educational suppliers, entertainers, party rental companies and concessioners.

Upon visiting the vendors, be sure that they stamp your “passport” as evidence that you have visited their booths and learned about their products.  Participants whose passports have stamps from 80 percent to 100 percent of the total number of participating vendors are eligible to enter their passports for a Grand Prize drawing.  The winner will be contacted a few days after the event.
