The February Maker Event at the Edgewood Library Learning Commons focused on electronics. Students were able to explore with Little Bits, Makey Makey, Snap Circuits, and Chibitronics. Several students created a card that lit up using Chibitronics. Others produced music using vegetables as a keyboard with Makey Makey. Mrs. Eberhardt, Teacher Librarian, would like to thank Region 8 and the Schwab Foundation for providing training and supplies for students to create with Chibitronics.
Our Makerspace is in need of materials. If you are interested in donating, we would love to have your Legos, K*NEX, or other building toys. We had one generous contribution of a Snap Circuits set. Crafting students would be happy to use paper punches, scrapbook paper, stamps and ink. Both teachers and students would make use of a Cricut die cut machine! Stay tuned for more Makerspace news!
