There are a couple of 10 minute videos ( here )about Sylvia's experience at ( Maker Faire ).
Give them a watch. What do they make you think?
I got to her website because of a link about "squishy circuits" like the ones we made.
Several thoughts run through my mind. I wish every student had a website with their own videos of how to do something they enjoyed. Do you have a theme song? I think we need to make more things. I want to go to Maker Faire (original one is in California every May, but one will be in ( Michigan ) July 28 & 29...only 3 hour drive & $50 for both days). Could/should we do a Maker Faire Buckeye and keep a "science fair" slant? How can we connect more with the Elementary school to promote science and exploration?
I have read a few issues of ( Make ) magazine (some of the things we have done came from them) and think about subscribing so we always have the latest to prime our thoughts on things to make & explore. They have a pretty good website, but not everything from the mag goes on the website. They have a "School's Out" issue coming up the end of May! You can always go to a bookstore & read it there (I do that sometimes).
