McAuley Makerspace Update

Week 1

The first two days of Term 3 were pupil free days, so this week was a short week of activities in the makerspace. Origami bookmarks was the first on the list.

Week 2

This week was about technology, creating robots. The students were introduced to Bristlebots and Scribble Bots. They had to make their bots using batteries, motors and wires. Making sure to connect the circuit correctly from the battery to the motor, they also learnt about balance, motion and speed.

Week 3

Pixel Beads. So much fun this week and as always pixel beads are very popular. The students have been able to let their creativity run wild and some interesting patterns have been made, including cats and tacos.
