-        This task will be done once every two weeks of project work...

-        You are to login to the MakerSpace page and use your static page that one group member has created.

-        See attached rubric to help guide you in terms of content for the journal entry.

-        Either group member can upload pictures and/or videos and/or documents to the MakerSpace page.  However, the group member that created the static page must link the content within the journal.

-       Be sure to date the journal entry in your static page and put the latest journal entry on the top.

-        Type your summary/reflection within the static page.  Also include any relevant website links and be sure to link your picture/video uploads.

      This can also be done at home in case a group member is absent.  My suggestion would be to type the entry in word and upload a document that could be linked in the journal at a later time from the member that is absent.

After you have completed the safety modules and researched the technologies, now need to find a partner and begin to work together on your project proposal. Keep in mind that the MakerSpace technologies are available for all groups but we are hoping that a pair of students will take ownership of a particular technology. As well, more than one technology can be used in a final project build.  Here are some good sites for project ideas...

Great job done by MVHSMake students who presented their final projects.  Thanks to our guests for participating in the presentation too!  

Posted: January 10, 2017

On Wednesday, we will be in the computer lab to begin working on final project presentation/summary video.  Since these will summarize what you will be doing over the next couple weeks, I have decided to make the last journal entry a reflection journal that EACH STUDENT MUST COMPLETE INDIVIDUALLY and link their responses in their project static page. I will be marking this one out of 20 and it will be an individual mark.  I suggest completing the journal in word and then upload to the MakerSpace website. 

Be sure to complete and answer the following...be descriptive in your responses!

1)  What was your highlight moment/event of the semester in this course?

2)  What did you find most frustrating about the course?

3)  This course is designed to apply the 4 C's...discuss whether you have developed in each of these areas:

CREATIVITY
CRITICAL THINKING & PROBLEM SOLVING
COLLABORATION
COMMUNICATION

4)  Now that the course is near completion, what is one (or more) key take away(s) from the course.

5)  Include a video clip and/or picture that showcases your contribution to the course.

NOTE:  This journal entry will be due MONDAY, JANUARY 16TH

 

We started our assembly line, we are now producing coffee mugs with custom text and logos, and also making t-shirts for the MVHS resource department.  We had a bunch of orders for coffee mugs and it always kept us with a new task each day.  With some of the images that we tried to cut, the turned out bad, so we had to work in the software to try and make the image work.  Everyday was essentially someone peel vinyl, someone press the vinyl onto whatever surface, and someone cut the vinyl.  We had many satified customers.  We are making low price products that are very customizable, and it's getting popular.  We've had many different people aproach us because they liked what we are doing. 

 

-Images

IMAGES

-This week in the Makerspace we worked on the 2016 MVHS Drag Team Logo, the original image wouldn't work with our vnyl cutting software because of the glare that was on the pistons on the original image.  We went to Mr. Whalen for help, he used Adobe Illistrator to re-create the image in a monochrome version of the image so it would work when we went to cut it, but we decided to change the logo to a Cragar wheel on a Radial T/A tire and 2016 MVHS Drag Team written in white letters on the tire.  We also tested a few different heat transfer prints and tried them on coffee mugs.  We found out that we needed to keep the pressure and heat on the coffee (suramic) mug for 60 seconds at the temperature of 305 degrees celcius to keep the image from peeling off in the dishwasher.  After we found that out, Mr. Whalen asked us to put three different images on three different mugs, so we did.  We are almost to the point of making this into a assembly line.
