Our class had the opportunity to visit the amazing MakerSpace at our county office. The students had a blast learning about Sandboxes and how they function. They have been coding and programming in the classroom, but this experience allowed them to see it in action. Some students programmed lights to flicker and change colors, while others experimented with temperature and sound sensors.
After tinkering with the Sandboxes, students created LED flowers out of plastic drinking bottles. This was a perfect project for us since we just learned about recycling and upcycling the week before.
Before leaving the MakerSpace, Mrs. Carlson let us tour the green room. The students wouldn’t stop talking about all the cool things they learned. What a great experience!
