Drafted a new resource, not to fit a single course/level, but something I hope might invite curiosity and discovery. Colleagues in / - feel free to use/share if useful...help get young minds bitten by the bug? 🌳

Love these. Wooden bookmarks designed by year 5 students. Laser cut and engraved into a sheet of wood that they spray painted first. The effect was really nice and almost metallic looking

Getting students ready for by practicing some plier skills. From simplest to hardest is #1) Straight paperclip with tight radius 90 degree bend, #2) Paperclip spring with same diameter loops, #3) a "perfect" circle (find the two ends)

Very impressed with this new and rather giant sized UV vacuum machine we picked up on Taobao for burning our own screens for printing. Being put to use already by Y5 students.

When do school districts plan, research and purchase. The purchasing cycle for education curriculum and technology.

& - I had a great idea doing this with angles and marbles, where students brainstorm ideas to see what slope/degrees would make a marble roll farthest, then create their own product with a variety of materials

Experimenting with having students do "long-distance" soldering demonstrations. Hope is that when students rotate in according to our staggered schedule, they'll have an idea of what tools we have, versus those from a some YouTube tutorial
