Sometimes the only thing needed to make something is a laptop and a wi-fi connection. The Makerspace has several students who put their working knowledge of Java to the test as they work with Minecraft modding tools to create new geometric creations.
It wouldn’t be the Thursday before Spring Break without making something out of nothing. Aspen and Ollie decided to use our abundant supply of saved/reclaimed cardboard to make a yarn ball sorter/dispenser and cardboard ukulele. It just goes to show, when you’re part of a community of makers anything is possible.
Laura chose to use multiple mediums for her awards for a film competition. Part Perler bead, glitzy star and reclaimed cardboard, these trophies definitely celebrate the best of the best.
What to do on a Monday? Finish building a customized LEGO Mindstorms robot of your own creation and give it the programming smarts to move around? Ollie did just that after seeing what another student accomplished after modifying a LEGO Mindstorms model. Ollie hopes to have his robotic wonder roaming freely soon after programming its imaging sensor. Who knows what will be added on next?
Teen Tech Week 2017 was a blast! We celebrated it March 8th-10th and used a drop-in format so that students could come and go, try new materials, and focus on what they were most interest in. Here are a few photos highlighting our week.
Teen Tech Week is right around the corner. Activities will be starting the Wednesday we get back from break (3/8). We have tons of drop-in events (see calendar below) and remember to sign up for the library for flex block to experience Breakout EDU! Adam will be teaching an Arduino workshop for beginners on Thursday afternoon, so just stop on by if you are interested in learning or if you want to improve your skills. We hope to see you there!
The theme this year is BE THE SOURCE OF CHANGE!
Gather your friends together this weekend and CRAFT. Make something new.
Try your hand at coding. Play with different materials. Tinker.
