Our middle school library has undergone a transformation over the past two years. With the implementation of a maker space area and an updated collection, our library is growing into the learning hub of our school!
Our students are full of creativity, curiosity and imagination!
The activities, resources and materials in our Makerspace support this daily. Some of the most exciting areas of our Makerspace are the 3D printing tools. Our students are amazed by the ability to create using these amazing resources. Adding to this area will allow our students to create and grow, as well as expose them to careers and technologies they may otherwise never experience.
My middle school Makerspace is booming with excitement over coding! Recently, I introduced our one Ozobot Evo to my 4th and 5th graders and instantly they took to it. The innovative hands-on approach to coding that the Ozobot Evo offers is amazing for young coders. They can quickly use the code guide to draw codes and create mazes and tracks for their Ozobot Evo to manuever.
With the Ozobot Evo, students who have never coded before can pick it up in minutes!
With a built-in scaffolding system, students can go from drawing codes to creating coding projects on the computer. They then transfer these projects to the Ozobot Evo and they can see their work come to life!
Learning to code opens a door to endless opportunities in the future! For many of my students, this will be the only chance they have to experience these awesome resources. I can not wait for my students to open their Donor's Choose box and see these creative coding Ozobots!
