Makers and Hackers

2014 New Elective Classes

Welcome to our new classes! We have grown from a pre-period club to elective classes focusing on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathmatics).

 

The First Week:

The students warmed up by building blinky bugs using batteries, LEDs and a simple switch. Several teams assembled workbenches and parts station that Mr. MacDonald purchased over the summer.

 

Week Two:

We started learning and experimenting with the Makey Makey. This is a controller that can use many different objects to control games (think bannnas, celery, playdough, cups of water and many more… We will be integrating this with Agent Cubes, ( a game making program). The kids will be building a game to learn the program (Frogger) and then designing their own games.
