Learn how one school implemented makerspace activities for eager, imaginative preschoolers. We'll focus on age-appropriate hand tools, building materials, nonsoldered electronic components, and maker apps that children aged 3-5 can use safely and playfully. Highlighted projects include activities inspired by literature and holiday-related crafts.

Recommended by ISTE’s Early Learning Network Purpose & objective Although reports of the popularity and success of makerspaces among elementary, middle school, and high school students abound on the internet and in print, preschoolers often are overlooked in planning makerspaces and maker activities.

Creative? First, the tall green things like to be stroked. Minecraft is split into two separate game modes. However, if you’d prefer to adventure into a world of danger, where you’re crafting and creating out of necessity, you’ll probably want to play in Survival mode.

The Microsoft Kinect is a popular device to be turned into a DIY 3D scanner. Hey everyone! I figured I would mix things up a bit. Here’s a tutorial with the deets on how to turn your ordinary Kinect into a 3D scanner! It’s not going to have the accuracy of the pros, but it’s not going to have the price ($2,000+, minimum!) Of the pros, either!

Sorry Mac users, Kinect is only for Windows. We made this scan of our marketing manager, Anastasia, using the Kinect. What you’ll need; A Microsoft Xbox 360 KinectWindows Kinect SDK v1.6MeshlabA 3D scanning app like Skanect or ReconstructMe. Setup: 1) Update your drivers for your specific card. 2) Make sure your Kinect is unplugged. 3) Install a scanning program.

Connect your Kinect (haha) to the PC. 4) Plug in your scanner and open Skanect to make sure it’s detected. Scanning: 1) Set your bounding box. 2) Start recording! 3) Hit spacebar or hit the “Stop” square to stop the recording. 4) Save & Export. Further Refinement: Now what? Minecraft. Kodestars.

Review Date. Worlds of Making @ NMHS. Setting up a Makerspace has been a priority of mine from the moment I started here at New Milford High School, and it’s already well on its way to being achieved.

Having a school principal who provides the perfect mix of encouragement and autonomy has, of course, been a great help, but it has also been very much a team effort: the school’s tech team and custodians have been very supportive and cooperative, along with a diverse variety of students interested in ‘making’ experiences. At the heart of the vision for my Makerspace is to develop the space and to provide resources and opportunities that will aid in promoting web literacy. These components encompass Mozilla's Web Literacy Standard. The standard is make up of three key elements: exploring, building and connecting and focuses on reading, writing and participating on the web. My intention is that instruction for students across the themes will make use of open-source options wherever possible.
