Rising to the Design Challenge
Picture a group of individuals gathered around a table trying to solve a problem under a tight deadline while using limited resources. Sound familiar? How did your envisioned scenario turn out? At Hopkins School, students were placed in teams and given a 45-minute class period to solve a design challenge. The result was a messy mixture of creativity, teamwork, learning, leadership, frustration, and triumph. Translation: it was a beautiful process to behold!
Challenge 1: Makey a Music Video
For this challenge, students worked with Ms. Doty to produce a 30-second music-jam video featuring a Makey Makey piano.
Challenge 2: Shifting Sculptures
For this challenge, students worked with Mrs. Weldon to create a sculpture that moves featuring LittleBits circuits.
