4th QUARTER 2017 LIBRARY ACTIVITIES

Make It at the MMS Library STEAM Activities

May 2017

  • K’nex Challenges – Each day students were given a new K’nex construction challenge to complete. Students used the K’nex building pieces to design prototypes for each of the challenges. Some of the designs included robots, Ferris wheels, vehicles for space exploration, watercraft, and playground equipment.
  • Makedo Cardboard Construction – Students used the tools in the Makedo toolkits to design and construct with cardboard and other recycled materials.
  • Makey Makey – Students experimented with Makey Makey circuit boards and Scratch programs in combination with non computer everyday objects to create unique computer controllers.  One of their favorites was the Makey Makey flower piano.
