today my partner and I did pico crickets that danced and also.
The project made sounds and it moved around and round.
It was very interesting to see that it was sensitve.
On the classroom management part of the class, we tried to implement something a little different this week. Normally, all the youth in a component take their break collectively, we wanted to see whether or not the youth would be responsible enough to manage their own break time. After each teen completed their three design challenges and a blog they were to take a fifteen minute break. We had a couple of teens that were running a little behind but for the most part everyone did a great job getting back on time. I think this is something that we will keep experimenting with.
I made a pico musical today. one i made with play dough. onewith a banana . and one with a pickle. it was cool but frustrating at the same time.
