Working

Collaborating is key!

  • Based on self-understanding, awareness and needs, and cognitive and affective growth, students will be able to choose a project in domains they are passionate about.

    Students will progress through the three phases of the cycle of inquiry within a Makerspace model.

    Phase 1: Units of Inquiry (Computer Graphics, Digital Communication, Robotics and Control Technology, and other new apps and technologies)

    1. Computer Graphics & Digital Communication

              Doodle 4 Google

              Google Art Project

              Illustrator

              Photoshop

              Photoshop Elements

              Punch Home Design Suite

              SketchUp - 3D Modeling

              Tinkercad

              CrazyTalk Animation

    1. Robotics & Control Technology with Circuitry

               Lego Mindstorms EV3 Robotics

               Snap Circuits

               MaKey MaKey

     

    Phase 2: Expression  (10 weeks)

    1. Units (open ended question to explore student direction and self)

              Who are you?

    Phase 3: Oration and Exposition:  Solutionary Showcase  (10 weeks)

    Presentations

    Share and express process of learning highlighting the inquiry arc and the engineering design process

    Develop and showcase their learning.

    Use a variety of mediums, resources, and materials to apply their learning, through the implementation of new strategies and skills to share with others, present solutions to design challenges, and solve meaningful problems.
