Mrs. DeBoer reports:
Team 3 is using an online CAD program called 3DTin. This program allows studentst to create 3D models similar to those used in 3D printing. Students are beginning to use cubes and beginning to create pixel art and then extruding to create 3D.

Team 2 is using programs that help us explore the aerodynamics of flight. This past week they created virtual paper airplanes online and then folded their own paper to replicate the design. Of course we had fun testing how well the models could fly!

The Technology Lab is an exciting place to be this year! Our new computers are lightning fast and we have lots of storage. These new machines have been a true blessing. During September, Teams 1, 2, and 3 reviewed Internet Safety and how to protect personal information online. In addition, Team 2 learned how to format the new features in Office 2013. Both Team 2 and 3 learned to use a site called bubble.us where students are able to create online thinking maps.

October is Engineering Month in the Tech Lab. Team 1 students will be using virtual block builders similar to Lego. Team 2 will be using online C.A.D. programs to design homes and Team 3 children will be designing virtual and model bridges. Engineering is a growing field and the skills students learn will be useful for building and expanding mathematical problem solving skills.

Looking forward to another great year! -- Mrs. DeBoer, Technology teacher
