April 2018 – Technology News

Hi all!

Exciting news in the technology department! Honey Creek is now the proud owner of a 3D printer!

In Middle School, we just began a unit that explores engineering design, 3D printing, and CAD software. We will be using an online CAD program, TinkerCad, to learn about design, 3D printing, electronics, programming, and more through hands-on projects.  Due to the time it takes to complete a 3D print, we will not have time for each student to print and take home a design this year, but my hope is that each class can vote on one thing to print by the end of the year.

In 4th/5th grade, we are using app.bookcreator.com to create digital books. Each student will be designing and narrating a page based on Todd Parr’s book,  It’s Okay To Be Different, which we will compile into a single book that will be available to download and print.

In 2nd/3rd, the students have been working on animal reports, which they will be making into green screen videos when they are finished writing them.
