#nagc14 Creativity Night Photo Wrap Up

Last week, we went up to Baltimore to attend the National Association of Gifted Children's 61st Annual Exhibition and Expo.

It was a great experience for our entire family!
We presented for Creativity Night. Our presentation was called Marine Maker Fair.

Here is a photo wrap up of our experiences with Creativity Night: Marine Maker Fair.
What a great  #nagc14 experience!
Special Thanks to:
Moving Beyond the Page, LEGO Education, Code Monkey Island, Melissa & Doug, Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Disney Youth, and Charlotte Wharton Studio.
Everything that you provided for the Marine Maker Fair was a huge hit!
Everyone who attended gave great feedback about your educational products.

They all loved checking out the Moving Beyond the Pages Guides. The teachers made comments that the guides seemed to be full of creative, higher order thinking activities that their students would enjoy.

The Creativity Fair attendees had fun trying out the LEGO StoryStarter Sets and reading the accompanying booklet that gives sample lessons for them to try. Many thought that this would work great for their students, either as a small group activity or possibly as a whole group activity. Thanks, LEGO Education!

Playing Code Monkey Island proved to be fun for all! The teachers enjoyed learning how to play from Little Bro and Big Bro. They loved the concept of the game and how it addresses learning something as complex as coding in a very fun way.
Melissa & Doug, the teachers loved the Sea Life Templates and Scratch Art Sets! Many teachers said that these art supplies would be well loved by their students.

Since we wanted to relay what our family has done within the realm of homeschooling, as well as what our Sunrise Learning Lab students have done and are continuing to do with respect to understanding Marine Conservation, we also shared a bit about #DisneyYouth.
We talked about how Disney Youth has Y.E.S. programs that tie in with marine conservation and how we hope to take a group of our Sunrise Learning Lab students to attend several of these programs.

Then, with respect to all things Disney, we also had the chance to share about Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and what a treasure trove Jodi Whisenhunt's book and blog are with respect to Disney-inspired homeschooling.

Finally, we took a few minutes to share about Charlotte Wharton's offer of a free art eBook. We talked about the lovely seascapes and how that ties in with the Marine Maker Fair. Charlotte was gracious enough to send us a link to her lovely art book since we do gifted fine arts here at Sunrise Learning Lab. She also has made the offer for other educators who teach art. Such a wonderful art book!

 We loved presenting and participating in Creativity Night and are excited that we will be there next year in Arizona and the following year in Florida. Billie, the NAGC Coordinator of Creativity Night, did an amazing job pulling it all together, so a big thanks to her, to her husband, and to the other committee members who organized the night, as well as the other presenters. We met some cool people and had a super time!
