1st & 2nd grade - Started working on coding projects on the iPads using the Scratch Jr. app. 1st graders used code to make characters dance, and 2nd graders used code and math to make characters race across the screen.
3rd grade - Started to explore the Scratch web application and will be jumping into their coding projects soon!
4th grade - Is learning about how computers receive input, process information, and give output. They created "binary keychains" after learning how computers only process info in 1s and 0s. They began their Cubelets unit, where they are learning to make robots that Sense, Think, and Act.
5th grade - Started their 3D Pen unit. They practiced using the 3D pen to doodle a letter. This week, they will use the engineering design process to design and doodle a working bubble wand.
Afterschool Makerclub - Tinkered with Makey Makey's and conductive materials to make game controllers, and started making Cube Creatures with 3D Pens.
