I saw this on my Facebook thread today and thought of the last couple of days in the Makerspace and the challenges that involved simple materials - boxes, tubes and recyclables.
I just had to share another of Mea’s creations...the challenge she chose (after we read ‘If I built a car’ by Chris Van Dusen) was to use everyday materials of her choosing to build a vehicle that could be powered by driving a Sphero Robot (using the Sphero Edu app on her iPad). As yet no one in the other 2 classes had been successful....their cars ‘wobbled’ or ‘shook’ but none actually moved forward or back. Mea works with determination, she problem solves and persists......her persistence pays off!
I wonder what the kids will call me, today one said "I'm looking for the Apple Teacher"......and another said "Are you Mrs Maker?" ......funny.
