Recess Follow-up

Since opening the Lab at selective recess periods (normally Tuesday-Friday) over the past 2 weeks, we have had a lot of young makers come through the door. To date, we have had 7 recess sessions and 72 students have signed in as they visited the Lab. Some are back for their 2nd or 3rd time but a lot are new. We have kept the sessions girls only and boys only and have had 3 girls sessions, 4 boys sessions. The numbers right now show 30 of the students were female. I will continue to have the kids sign in to keep a record of who is showing up and what they are working on.

Originally, the Lab was open to 3rd-6th grade students but there has been a lot of interest from 2nd grade. So this week, we changed the recess Lab sessions to:
   Tuesday, 4th-6th grade boys
   Wednesday, 2nd-3rd grade boys
   Thursday, 4th-6th grade girls
   Friday, 2nd-3rd grade girls

We are also open during part of the day for students to come in if their classroom teacher sends them to work on a project. This has accounted for about a quarter of our visitors.
