SLATE 2014 - Meet Your Maker Presentation
Sharing what we are doing and connecting with families is an essential goal of our SP Design Lab. Even though the Design Lab is open during school hours and after-school, it has always been a goal to connect with families during Build Nights. Our first Build Night was facilitated by Instructables.com who donated $800 worth of LEDs. In order to integrate the LED Build Night, it was integrated into our school Back to School night to ensure that more students and families could participate.
Global Cardboard Challenge
The SP Design Lab will be starting with a focus on cardboard creation for the month of October. The Global Cardboard Challenge is based on Caine's Arcade. Cardboard and imagination are powerful tools that our students have access to as well as other art materials that were donated through Donor's Choose and a generous donation from the Lily Sarah Grace Fund.
The goal is to document our creations through capturing images and video that will be shared using tools like Discovery Education's Board Builder, Animoto, iMovie, blogging and more. Please return soon to find out where our adventure is taking us using cardboard and the most powerful creation tool available - the imagination.
