Summer Robotics ’19

What a great week!! Students worked with WeDo Robotics Kits, Ollies, Spheros, Cubelets, and did quite a bit of programming!!

These media clips were captured entirely by students.

I caught this stuff on my iPhone.

Some students chose to indpendendently produce music videos. They were not published to YouTube, but they are saved on my drive. Amelia, Georgina

Animation Station Summer ’19

This afternoon we are wrapping up an incredible week of creativity, innovation, and collaboration. The students produced so many projects, that I had to assemble them in four different videos which have been uploaded to my YouTube channel. It has been an absolute joy working with these amazing students.

Our first video features work by Amelia P, Sareen, Kalia, Isla, Colette, and Arya.

Our next video features work by Willa, Juliet, Richard, and Amelia S.

Video three features work by Arya, Desmond, Gabriel, and Arthur.

Our last video features work by Richard and Amelia P.

Week 35

Risk-takers. Doers. Makers of things. These are the X students, the creative thinkers. They’ve been the driving force for economic, technological, political, and cultural change throughout history. Today, everyone needs to be a risk-taker, a doer, a maker of things—not
necessarily to bend the arc of history, but to bend the arcs of their own lives. — Mitchel Resnick, MIT Media Lab

Our video will give you a glimpse into the options our makers and doers chose in the lab this week.

Week 34 in the Lab

I hope you enjoy our short video. You will see that 9-12 students took the Ozobot Clean Energy Challenge, and animated poems by writing code. Also featured are some 12-14 Studio students building K’Nex roller coasters, afterschool WeDo Robotics students, and Phin’s amazing Animation.

Week 32

Students have been busy since Spring Break, and it appears I forgot to post last week, but here’s what has been going on. Some young afterschool coders got their Scratch accounts, Lucas 3D printed and assembled his Glowing Penguin Circuit, and Kate finished her robotic cat. During school day technology sessions, students created makey makey game controllers, learned about acrostic poems, wrote apps and tested them on my iPhone, programmed a Tynker game with some very interesting remixes, learned how to sketch with Dash robots, and created a robot hockey rink, complete with penalty boxes.
