Calling all thinkers, tinkerers, and inventors!
GPB Education will be live streaming from Georgia Tech’s Flowers Invention Studio in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday, May 9, 2019, from 10 AM to 11 AM EST. No permission slips required!
This live virtual field trip will offer students an inside look into the largest student-run makerspace in the world as they learn about the engineering design process, hear from Georgia Tech students, and see ideas transform into inventions. The program is aligned to Georgia standards and targets an audience in 3rd-8th grades.
This event includes live interactive elements, such as polls and experts who are available to answer students’ questions. Viewers can use the hashtag #InventionLive to participate in the conversation.
K-12 classroom resources are currently available on gpb.org/invention to help prepare your students for the show and/or use as extension activities to further learning.
Watch the live stream on gpb.org/invention or on your local GPB TV channel. An archived show will be available on demand after May 9th on gpb.org/invention and GPB Education’s YouTube page.
