It was a good day.

A sculpture made from recycled material.
Checking in with my upcycled lights.
Reusing water bottles as hanging planters.

Toy Hacking Begins.

Our electricity unit has begun.  This year Mr. Dempsey and I are trying something new.  Students brought in toys and are going to remove the circuit and study the learning goals with their toy.  Toy Hacking.

A former student.

A student from last year created a solar panel for a High School project.  He was excited about our electricity unit last year and decided to learn about solar power.  There are no words to describe my emotions.

Teaching himself tinkerCAD to design a new reusable container for the lunch room.

"That was awesome. I did it."

A couple ladies building a compost bin.  Another drilling holes in plastic bottles to upcycle them as shades for a string of lights.
