MakerSpace Family Fun Night


   Thanks for creating, building and exploring!
   On April 21 parents exercised their imaginations while creating with their
   students at six 10-minute stations where all were led step-by-step
   through projects using some of students' favorite MakerSpace items in the
   CTE Media Center.



Families learned to make projects using:  
     • Sphero - The original app-enabled robotic ball.
     • Makey Makey - An invention kit for the 21st century that turns everyday objects into touchpads.
       For beginners and experts doing art, engineering, and everything in between. 
     • Squishy Circuits - A whole new way to explore electrical circuits from the Playful Learning Lab at
       the University of St. Thomas. The goal of the project is to design tools and activities that allow
       children of all ages to create circuits and explore electronics using play dough.
     • K'NEX - Toy bricks, rods, and connectors that students use to build various objects. 
     • Snap Circuits - Build exciting projects, such as FM radios, digital voice recorders, burglar
       alarms, doorbells, and much more! Parts are mounted on plastic modules that easily snap together.
     • littleBits - Easy-to-use electronic building blocks that empower you to invent anything, from your
       own remote controlled car, to a smart home device. The Bits snap together with magnets, no
       soldering, no wiring, no programming needed.
