The SEV project is coming to the next step which is painting. Students pick either silver, gold or copper colored spray paint and a few minutes of shaking, their SEVs are covered with a new "skin" and are set out to dry.
While they are drying, students go to the bins on the "take-apart club" table (take-apart club meets twice a week during recess and students can take apart computers, printers, radios...whatever is on hand. All the parts, circuit boards, buttons, etc. are stored for future projects...like the SEVs). There they can pick between 3 and 6 different pieces that will be glued onto their SEV...of course these parts must be included on their design and meet a specific need.
When they are done, it's time to display them around the library and and science classroom.
But they are not done...time to add LEDs or MakeyMakeys/Scratch...check back soon for a new post.
