Learning & Using Attachment Techniques

Last week in Makers’ Club, we learned some attachment techniques.  Second graders learned how to use fasteners and how to make flanges and a gusset with triangle supports.  Third graders learned how to use fasteners and how to make flanges and slots. This week, students used the techniques they learned to build a grandfather clock.

Projects of the Week- Sept. ’17- May ’18

The Project of the Week is shared with teachers electronically, then posted, and set up in the STEAM Room each week.  This enables homeroom teachers to sign up for a time and bring their class in with very little prep work. These are the projects that have been shared up to the present date.

LEGO WeDo Kits Were a HIT!

This week, we used our LEGO WeDo kits to introduce coding and robotics to our second and third-grade students.  It is always AWESOME to see these students follow visual directions and complete the coding to make their robots move!  Check it out! Thanks again to the BBH Schools Foundation for these awesome kits!
