Students and families were able to enjoy the Makerspace during Share Fair this Thursday.
Three years ago I attended my first Maker Faire in Milwaukee and it was so inspiring. Last year they added an educational component and I was lucky enough to be able to attend it and connect with other educators around the state about making and education.
This year Rachel Nolan and I will be presenting about how we are using Bloxels in Genius Hour to promote making.
Last year I attended the Making in Education Conference at the 2nd annual Milwaukee Maker Faire. I learned and connected with other educators around the state about making in education. I also was able to enjoy the Milwaukee Maker Faire too. This year will be even better.....
As part of Genius Hour, one of our students created a Bloxels game about Bloxels. I had hoped that we could find a way for the student to reach out to the Bloxels team to add even more to his game. Still working on the Bloxels interview part.... Josh?
