A number of students were inspired by previous Creator's Studio projects from the past. Raspberry Pi was once again a hit with three seventh graders, with a focus on custom portable gaming machines. The infinity mirror concept was taken in a new direction, a bit larger than the previous semester and incorporating a wooden pedestal frame.
One 8th grader built a Light Box based on an idea she found on the web, while another disassembled an existing light circuit in order to solder on different colored LEDs and redesign the entire structure to form a decorative tree for her nightstand. Two students built their skateboards from multiple sheets of plywood, using a bandsaw and the laser cutter to complete the design. And to complete our group, one student is working on a personal drone.
It was another enjoyable semester. I learned as much as I taught. My students inspire me to learn more and work to provide the best learning environment possible for future creators.
