Oh, what a night! FableVision and The Reynolds Center for Teaching, Learning, and Creativity gave creative educators a peek behind FableVision Studios’ curtains where all the magic happens!
Special guest Miss Massachusetts, Lauren Kuhn, one of five STEM scholarship recipients at Miss America, introduced Peter H. Reynolds and Paul A. Reynolds, co-founders of the Reynolds Center and FableVision. Don’t let the tiara intimidate you, she’s the sweetest!
Attendees got an exclusive look at a wide array of STEAM-themed items:
- HUTCH Magazine, a magazine filled with submissions from kids in grade K-6. HUTCH is published semi-annually under the direction of Peter H. Reynolds, with the help of the Blue Bunny Bookstore, and his nonprofit foundation, the Reynolds Center. The magazine features stories, art, poetry, book reviews, travel logs, and interviews submitted by kids.
- Zoombinis! Through a partnership with TERC and the Learning Games Network, FableVision Studios embarked on a journey to relaunch the classic ’90s game for today’s generation. Through Zoombinis, players learn important life skills such as algebraic thinking, data analysis, theory formulation, and more in a fun, engaging setting. Get a sneak peek of this remastered game before it’s launched later this summer!
- Fab@School Maker Studio, a digital fabrication software tool with curriculum support that is helping turn elementary school classrooms and libraries into dynamic makerspaces. What a cool tool!
