Chibitronics at ISTE20 Live

Chibitronics will be presenting at this year’s ISTE20 Live discussing how to integrate computer science and paper engineering into your teaching. Want to join us? See all the details below.

When: November 29 – December 5, 2020 (Registration is rolling but early bird pricing ends on October 1!)

Where: Online! Find out more and register here.

What: We’ll be presenting two sessions – 5 Stories from the Land of Paper Circuits and Using Paper Circuits for Creative Prototyping in an Urban Planning Design Challenge.

5 Stories From the Land of Paper Circuits

Saturday, December 5, 9:00–9:45 am PST

  • Session format: Listen and learn
  • Session topic: Computer science & computational thinking
  • Secondary session topic: Storytelling/multimedia
  • Subject area: STEM/STEAM, Performing/visual arts
  • Audience role : Curriculum/district specialists, Teachers, Library media specialists
  • Grade level: PK-12
  • Skill level: Beginner
  • Presenters: Barbara Liedahl and Susan Brown

Description: Creative educators worldwide have built expressive electronic circuits using paper and paper-friendly microcontrollers, LED stickers, motors and sensors, integrating media arts, coding and maker mindsets. Hear stories from five “neighborhoods” in our Land of Paper Circuits and leave with ideas and resources for bringing this experience to your classroom.

Diversity, equity and inclusion: Working with educators and students from a wide variety of socioeconomic, cultural, and racial backgrounds, we share examples of their inspiring work throughout our presentation. Paper circuits are an accessible medium for learning programming and electronics, helping to level the playing field, and supporting efforts towards greater diversity amongst technologists.

Using Paper Circuits for Creative Prototyping in an Urban Planning Design Challenge 

Saturday, December 5, 12:30–1:30 pm PST

  • Session format: Participate and share (Poster)
  • Session topic: Maker activities & programs
  • Secondary session topic: Computer science & computational thinking
  • Subject area: Social studies, STEM/STEAM
  • Audience role: Curriculum/district specialists, Teachers, Library media specialists
  • Grade level: PK-12
  • Skill level: Beginner
  • Presenters: Barbara Liedahl and Susan Brown

Description: Explore the intersection of art and coding through a “paper city” design challenge! We will begin with an introduction to paper circuitry, broadening ideas about what technology can look and feel like. Participants will then dream up paper cities of their own in response to a group design challenge.

Diversity, equity and inclusion: We work with educators and students from a wide variety of backgrounds and will share examples of their inspiring work in our presentation. Paper circuits is a creative and accessible medium for learning programming and electronics, helping level the playing field and support efforts towards greater diversity amongst technologists.
