Constructing Modern Knowledge, now in its 7th year, creates a one-of-a-kind environment in which educators from around the world learn by doing while supported by an amazing faculty. All sorts of tools, technologies, and materials are utilized in the creation of mind-blowing projects over the course of an immersive four days.
Over the past few years, some CMK participants have engaged in sophisticated projects utilizing microcontrollers and other electronic components. So, it seemed like a good time to add a serious expert to our faculty that already includes:
- Dr. Cynthia Solomon – co-inventor of Logo
- Brian Silverman – designer of Apple Logo, LogoWriter, LEGO TC Logo, Pico Crickets, The Phantom Fishtank, MicroWorlds, Turtle Art (and a lot of Scratch)
- Eric Rosenbaum – The developer of Singing Fingers and Glow Doodle and co-inventor of Drawdio and MaKey MaKey
I am thrilled to announce that Joey Hudy will join the esteemed faculty of Constructing Modern Knowledge July 8-11, 2014 in Manchester, NH. Joey is a legend in the maker movement for his ingenuity, intelligence, and ability to shock the President of the United States by firing a marshmallow cannon in the White House. He really knows his stuff!
Recently, Make named Joey Hudy, “One of the 10 smartest kids on the planet” and has earned two “Editor’s Choice” awards from Maker Faire. Mr. Hudy is the inventor of the 3x3x3 LED Cube Arduino shield and the Joey Hudy #1 SMD LED Arduino shield. The proceeds from his inventions fund trips to Maker Faires around the world. Recently, Joey’s has been focused on making life-size 3D scanners.
Joey’s blog, Look What Joey’s Making, reminds visitors to “Don’t be bored… Make Something!” This slogan has been adopted recently by the White House to inspire various S.T.E.M. initiatives.
Joey’s talent and expertise will surely inspire and assist the educators who participate in Constructing Modern Knowledge 2014! By the way, Joey Hudy is 16 years-old.
