Today in holiday hacking we created a scarecrow out of paper and popscicle sticks. With me monitoring, students used the hot glue glun on their own to make the face for the scarecrow.
Today the Cardboard Club decided what they want to construct.Then the engineers drew their draft plans and created a materials list for next week.

My club brainstormed today and decided they needed to get a message out to our school. They want our campus not to be just great, but awesome!
Over the next few club meetings we are working on painting a large banner that will hang in the front foyer.
The students decided to paint on their banner: “Make a Difference” It is their wish that this will help lead the pathway to awesomeness!!!
We can’t wait to get started next club meeting!
