I first heard about Everett from his sister whom I taught two years ago. She would go back and tell her brother the projects that I would assign and he would do them. Everett is a tinkerer, a creator, a maker. You will see a fair amount of his work in this space. Soon I will have him write his own post in this space. Until then: He is designing a parachute system for his motorized longboard. We talked and came up with a spring loaded Clorox wipes container as the case. He then went home and designed a hinged lid on Tinkercad.com.
Our Makerbot fired up with no issues this morning. I love this machine. 4 years old and still going strong.
Mezmorized waiting for the lid.
His design to go around the container and hold the lid.
Fits like a glove.
The lid will release with a pin mechanism that will pull out a stick and open the container. Don't worry I will keep you updated.

Today we discussed brainstorming and came up with ideas on how to change our space.
Me: For what?
S: To get ideas for the room
Me: Of course! You didn't even have to ask.
A plethora of ideas.
Today we interviewed each other and reported back what we found. Science will start sometime soon.
I bought a bike desk for both the students and I to use if we want. Every hour had some takers. We will see how it goes.

This is our first week back without kids. Thursday we had a meeting at Steeger and got to see the 6th grade Teachers' newly designed spaces. Rebecca Hare came in to help reimagine thier classrooms. Follow Rebecca on Twitter at @RLH_DesignED. Amazing.
I was asked to present design thinking to an incredible group of educators doing amazing things at Hudson Elementary! I started with some background on me and then we dove into designing. Thank you Hudson for having me and being such gracious hosts.
