PNG Radio Scary Stories - Day 3

We have all of our audio files today so we can finally clip and edit the sound! Using Audacity, we got rid of all our mistakes and dead air. We even got to add some sound effects.

Thursday we will wrap up and put our files on CDs.

TinkerCAD - Day 3

The designing grind continues today. Some people finished up designs they started new ones, while others continued with they original designs.

We should finish up and prep for printing on Tuesday...

PNG Radio Scary Stories - Day 2

Now that we picked our stories, we are ready to record! Using Audacity, we plugged in our microphone and recorded our narrations.

Now that we have the audio clips, we can edit them and burn them on CDs next week!

PNG Radio Scary Stories - Day 1

Halloween is quickly approaching so why not get in the spirit by reading our own scary stories and turning them into a radio show!

We are going to pick out some scary short stories and record an audio file of us reading them using Mixcraft and a microphone. From there, we will compile them all together and have an entire album full of scary stories!

TinkerCAD - Day 1

We are starting up our 3D printing class again! 3D design experts or beginners can come in, learn the ropes, and then bring their creations to life!

Today, the beginners went through the TinkerCAD lessons to prepare them to make their own design and the experts got to brainstorming.

Ozobots - Day 2

Today was coding day! We wrapped up our obstacle course and opened up Ozoblockly, our coding software. From there, it was a race to see who could complete the course first!

Book Page Art

We're pushing our vinyl cutter to the max today! We're deciding to try our Harry Potter book page art class one more time because the results turned out so great before. Since we only had one day, we had to find images, prepare them in Silhouette Studios, cut them out on to a book page, and paste them to card stock. We got a lot done and the results turned out even better than last time!

Ozobots - Day 1

Today was the first day of our Ozobot obstacle course extravaganza! The goal for today was to design a obstacle course that we can code our bots to solve. We got very in depth and with our course, giving it bridges and walls.

Thursdays we will code the bots to tackle the course!

Hour of Code (MidKids)

This was another of our monthly freelance coding classes. People came in and tried coding an Ozobot, building their own Kano computer, and doing good ol' hour of code.

Robot Club - 10/5/17

We are slowly making progress on our claw bot. Four people showed up to this month's session so we split up into two teams to build different parts of the claw bot.

This blog will serve as a journal entry to help remind us what we did for the next session so students will answer the following questions in the comment section:

What was accomplished today?

What should be accomplished for next session?

Did anything go wrong?  

Next month we'll continue building our robot!
