Here are some great websites for project ideas/builds...


Planning is key to any successful project!  You will now begin to brainstorm and research project ideas.  This project can be done in pairs or individually (groups of 3 need my approval).  Keep in mind that the technologies in the MakerSpace are available for all groups but I am hoping that a pair of students will take ownership of a particular technology.  As well, I encourage students to use more than one technology in their final project build.  Since many of these technologies are new, start with easy objectives in the beginning in order to strengthen your skillset.  


See attached rubric for more details on what needs to be in your proposal.  Also attached is the blank word and rename.  Email with completed by Friday, Sept. 15th.

-        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.
