Stop-Motion Animation with Google Slides: Slides is so much more than a presentation tool! In this session, you will plan and create a short, stop-motion movie. This technique can make your student’s real animators just by using Google Slides. Most of the techniques could also be applied using Powerpoint.

Basic coding with Sphero Robotics: Anyone can code! Robotics makes it fun. In this session, you will use block programming commands to create shape patterns (e.g., squares, triangles, stars) and develop a hot potato game. No prior experience with coding is necessary. Whether you are new to coding or looking for another activity to implement in your classroom, this session will offer tips and suggestions.
