Run by Techkidz for Techgirlz. Please email Debi Bender with any questions. Thank you! Humans are visual creatures. Pictures help us learn, understand, and remember things better. For this reason, more and more businesses are using infographics to persuade their audience, tell a story, and display their data in a graphical way. In this workshop, students will observe that infographics are often used to raise awareness or sell products in social media, and are more easily searched and viewed on the Pinterest platform. Students will learn the difference between good and bad research, gather information on a topic of their choosing, and then use a free, online tool called Piktochart to make an infographic from the data collected. Note: Please bring a device. Snack will be provided. Parking is available at Planet Fitness next to the library. Hermitage Street is a one way, and you may park across the street. If coming from a neighborhood school take the 9(to Andorra) and get off on Hermitage Street.
