SMS STEAM Inventing

Dear STEAM Inventing Families,

Our Helmet Design Project is almost complete! We are testing on Friday! Through testing, students will explore how the design would protect the skull and brain of a real person (anatomy of the brain).

This week, students worked as inventors with the help of Makey Makey. A Makey Makey is an invention kit for the 21st century. Students learned about electrical circuits by turning everyday objects into touch-pads and combined them with the internet. Makey Makey is a simple Invention Kit for Beginners and Experts doing art, engineering, and everything in between.

Last Friday, your child brought home a personalized letter, explaining how to sign up using a QR code to access their private portfolio for STEAM. It is great to see so many of you connected to your child's online portfolio! You can receive notifications when your child adds new items. We have added a new post this week for Makey sure to check it out!
