Los Reyes GT Showcase
We are now building full-blown structures with our 3D pens. In the Fall, we used a template to create windmills. This proved to be more complicated than it sounds, as students had to create each part individually (tower, vane, gearbox, etc) and then meld them together. We had several successes! Some students then had the chance to get creative and draw whatever they chose. Next up in the Spring, the Golden Gate Bridge.
Structured Names - We discussed the Big Idea of structures being more than just buildings or bridges. Structures can be natural or man-made, concrete or abstract. Names can be structures too! Students were asked to create their own nameplates using unique structures for each letter, therefore using smaller parts to create a larger structure.
