This week students generated questions and worked on answers that would help respond to their problem that they are trying to solve.
Here is a quick glimpse into what Design Lab looks like this month.
Here is a quick look into what we have going on in the SP Design Lab.
This week and next week our students will be visiting the Design Lab to learn about all of the new choices that will be offered on Wednesday and Friday lunch recess.
Manuel Herrera created this awesome Bloxels planning sheet and another educator on Twitter created a board for students to color before creating which he shared so I mashed the two resources together for those students who this will meet their planning needs.
This year we were again invited to showcase some of the technology that we use at Stoner Prairie at the Back to School Block Party. The event is a fun way for our school to connect with the community as well as we benefit from the donations to purchase technology to support student learning at our school.
Creating the prototype is my favorite part of the LAUNCH cycle because it really provides a rich experience with problem solving. Sometimes it is the materials and access. Sometimes it is the design. But all of the challenges really help the designers stretch and flex in their ideas. I've found that when it comes to 3D printing that using Model Magic first really helps students to start in the concrete and move into the abstract of Tinkercad or Morphi.
