Computational Thinkerers at Maker Faire Singapore 2018

http://singapore.makerfaire.com/

Our Tampines Hub (Community Auditorium) Fri to Sun, Aug 17-19, 2018

Who are Computational Thinkerers?

Computational Thinkerer is a mash-up of computational thinking and tinkering. Computational Thinking is increasingly called the fourth R, in tandem with the current 3R (Reading, wRiting, and aRithmetic). Experience CT through a series of FUN tinkering activities, including: (a) Bill Gates and Pancake Flipping, (b) Reading your Mind with MatheMAGIC, and (c) Finding your Flip Magic.

Workshop on Computational Thinking: A Gentle Introduction to CT

August 19 (Sunday), 1pm to 2:30pm

Computational Thinking has been said to be the fourth R, in tandem with the current 3R (Reading, wRiting, and aRithmetic). And many have recognized the importance of CT as a life skill for all in the 21st century and beyond.

In this workshop, we will give a gentle introduction to CT via three fun and thought-provoking hands-on activities that expose participants to the FUN and the thinking processes behind CT.

These activities include some of the following:

  • Bill Gates and Pancake Flipping (introduction to algorithms!)
  • Reading your Mind with MatheMAGIC,
  • Finding your Flip Magic

The workshop will close with reflections on how these activities link to real-life problem solving in computer science and everyday things in our lives.

"Come with an open mind and a questioning attitude."
