A Maker's World

With today's on the verge of hitting 40 degrees celsius, Year 2 had the delight of working with our mobile makerspaces. Students were able to discover the a great deal of creative understanding could be gained by exploring concepts such as circuitry, engineering and mathematics through play. They were enthralled by the idea of being able to create game controllers and the rich mathematical understanding they needed to use them. They played a piano using copper tape, had robots controlled by clapping and created a reaction speed test using Sphero.

The delight on their faces, engagement levels and the wow moments was a great pleasure to watch.
