HackerSpace/HackerSpace Jr. Final Day of Session 1


Students had the option of creating a t-shirt, a WiggleBot or working on a Raspberry Pi! We certainly had fun as we learned!  Can't wait for session 2!  


 
Classroom MakerSpace!


Our first graders were asked to design a house for the 4th little pig that could withstand the huff and puff of the big bad wolf. Then, were given a second opportunity to reinforce their house after learning from their first attempt. This classroom makerspace gave our students a chance to be creative while they problem solved! Great job first grade!    
Then vs' Now


In celebration of the 50th day of school, Kindergarten learned about some 1950's fads, discussed the differences between then and now, and participated in some pasttimes including hula hoops and bowling. We ended the day with root beer floats straight from our class soda shop!    
HackerSpace Jr. Project #3


Another fun HackerSpace today using LED lights and coin batteries (and learning about positive and negative charges)! If you visit GALES before Thanksgiving break, take a peek at our turkey displays. They are located in the office, cafeteria and media center.      
HackerSpace Jr - Project #2


HackerSpace and HackerSpace Jr. was a blast this morning! We learned about robotics and more about raspberry pi! We had our completed robots dancing on the dance floor and coloring away! The students were so engaged and working hard to get their robot to work and all were successful! They were fantastic at problem solving when the motor stopped working or the robot fell down and quickly got their robot back on the dance floor!      
Sultana Trip!


Our 5th graders just had an amazing field trip with the Sultana Education Foundation! They boarded the Sultana, took a ride, shot a cannon, caught fish, learned about how our waterways have changed over time and so much more! What a great learning experience!

Our HackerSpace Jr. students completed their first project today! They made mini flashlights from scratch and they all did great! Here are a few shots of them shining bright, just like our students! We can't wait until next week so we can start a robotics project that will include the markers that you have sent in!    
Music Presentations


Our 5th grade students learned about instruments and then worked on their presentation skills as they presented what they learned to their class., building confidence along the way!  Great job 5th grade!
