The First Day

The first day of school means the first day of MakerSpace!

The kindergarteners came for Open Lab, which means they were the first students to explore our new MakerSpace. Open Lab is a chance for classes to explore different works in the MakerSpace and build freely. Today the students worked in the WonderLab.

We used a timer with the spinning top work to see which size would spin the longest. The tiniest top was the winner – it kept spinning for one minute and fifty-seven seconds!

Building sand castles with kinetic sand had a learning curve – the sand is so soft, it stuck in the molds. Students used trial and error until they were able to create an entire sand fort!
