Open Lab at Recess - Day #2

Today was 3rd through 6th grade girls day in the Lab at recess time. I had 16 young creators come in. Like the boys, the girls had a small group that was working on the mini helicopters for their 5th grade play. Different from the boys, were 9 girls that had individual projects that they wanted to create. One wanted to make a box for her bother, a few others had started playing with 123D Design on their iPads and wanted to 3D print something. The remainder wanted to make small presents for a friend.

I explained to them that this was not just a time to find something on Thingiverse and make it. This was a time for them to imagine, plan, and create. It didn't have to be "school" related, it just has to be planned out.

With the good turnout and interest we had, next week I am opening at recess Tuesday-Friday. The grade levels will be the same...3rd-6th. The first 2 days will be for the boys and the end of the week will go to the girls.
