Last TWO Weeks of Q2 promise to be exciting in PLTW!

We are beginning a lesson on "How To" and "Safety Soldering in a Classroom" on 1/4/16 and hope to solder the next day! Please review the Safety Rules Handout given to each student on Monday with them and have them read through the presentation again at home. We will begin with practicing proper soldering techniques for a classroom setting by soldering paperclips together into Paperclip People. We hope to be able to solder together the NiteLight Project which requires very precise soldering joints. Thank you so much to all the parents who are able to be present in the classroom over the next couple days so that this will be possible!

Quarter 2 Ends January 15th

As Q2 concludes, I will be very sad to see this group leave me but we have some exciting projects potentially occurring in PLTW with soldering. The end of Quarter 2 is quickly approaching on January 15th, so be sure to check Powerschool and make sure all project handouts/conclusions are turned in. Please see me or email me with any concerns after Tuesday so you can check in with me in class Monday. This means the school year is almost half over already! Wow.
