The TIES, Technology in Education Showcase, was a great success yesterday evening. We had over 300 visitors, per our visitor counter, and the students were excellent presenters of their littleBits creations. Here is a short video about the event:

Today, we used our Makey Makey circuit boards again. This time we checked out more items to see if they were conductors or insulators. We used bananas, lemons, limes, potatoes and all the items from last week including Play-doh! It was certainly a fun and exciting learning time for all.

The 5th graders are starting a great unit using the Makey Makey boards. Makey Makey's are circuit boards that connect to the computer for power. Then the students make circuits using all types of connective items. We tried out all types of items yesterday, to discover which were conductors and which were insulators. Here is a short video showing the hands on learning.
