Clark @ the HUB
The 4th grade students at Clark Elementary came to the HUB for a collaborative project. The teachers and the Makerspace staff partnered on this PBL project! Each subject area centered around early American history, with technology integrated into each rotation.For math, students used spheros as their boats to navigate their journey to America. The students had been learning about angles in math, so their path had to have so many specific kinds of angles. For reading, students “explored” in VR headsets places around the world in the WONDER app after they read aboutDaniel Boone in class. For history and science, they built boats and tested them in a pool of water. The students went through the engineering design process to revise their boats, as early Americans would have done before journeying. We loved helping with this amazing project! Let us know if we can help your grade level create and conduct a cross-curricular project!

vrMorgan Elementary

Morgan Elementary 1st grade came to visit the HUB and learned about earth science. They investigated shadows and how they moved, the interaction between the Sun and the Earth, and how how constellations are made.

McClean County

McClean County middle school spent a day at the HUB. The students rotated between three different activities. App creating, 3D printing, and virtual reality engaged the students while at the HUB. They got a taste of computer science and absolutely loved coming to the HUB.

chessTilghman Chess Team

The Tilghman chess team came to the Makerspace! They used the Makerspace to learn how to make their own chess boards! After learning, the chess team conducted their own fundraiser and sold custom chess boards to our community! Mr. Knight and the team did a great job with this project! Look for their custom chess boards throughout our community!

organismMcNabb Elementary

McNabb 4th grade spent an afternoon at the HUB in April! They came to engineer and design with life science standards. The students built their own shelters for the tundra, after they visited the tundra through a VR experience. In another rotation, the students built an organism to live in the tundra from clay. They presented their internal and external structures to help their organism survive. Augmented reality was used to take their 2D drawings to 3D drawings.
