Maker Corps Camp Week 14 @make @makeredorg #possibilities #myjobisfun #summerlearning

Maker Camp was back in action this week! We had 19 8 – 10 year olds and during the week, they did all kinds of fun stuff – Art Bots, Tie-Dye, Sewing, LEGO Mindstorms…so fun.

 

Art Bot!

My learning this week was about LEGO Mindstorms. I’ve heard about them, but have never played with or explored them and I’m in love. They are a perfect mix of Maker, Math, Engineering, and Inquiry. Another thing to add to my school wish list!

I built my own set of Circuit Blocks this week. I think my teachers will enjoy getting their hands on these to explore electricity and even sound (there is a buzzer) with students.
