Guest speaker

We will be joined by Associate Professor Todd Kelley, from Purdue College of Technology in Indiana, who will share his perspectives on design, STEM and sketching in American D and T education. Todd has worked with elementary schools in America looking at how design skills are taught and assessed, the use of sketches and sketch books, 3D printing in D and T, and D and T as part of STEM.
