Using your Games Crafting Powers for Good (or Awesome!): Designing STEM/STEAM games *with* children.

"A talk by Tom Cockeram (Tang Mu Designs) covering his experience as a Makerspace Educator and Designer, using games design as a method for delivering education and inspiring confidence in the face of the unknown. Crafting materials and techniques for a wide range of technologies will be discussed, as well as a showcase of some of Tom's work created using these techniques.

Tom is a dad, doodler and multifaceted designer of everything from papercraft kits and 3D printed board games to book illustrations. He is currently finishing off his MA in product design at Manchester Metropolitan University and exploring ways of making education accessible through project based learning, and learning through play.
His favourite dinosaur is an Anklyosaurus."
