New School Year: Boxes, Trays and Benches
This week, I’m proposing and planning projects for the 2011-2012 school year. According to the Mayans, it should be a killer.
I’m attached to the Math/Sci crew as a “Technology Resource” – meaning I’m running a CAD workshop, an Electronics course and probably some sort of Lego Mindstorms-based course. In my traditional role as a woodshop teacher, I’ve developed a 3-project pipeline. Small butt joint boxes based on this tutorial
which eventually turn into the Butterfly Bench. I am also proposing a Bike Mechanics service project – students build, curate & service a bike fleet for the school. I’d also like a chance to have the kids offer those services to the school’s community at-large. Can you imagine a bike repair day at your school?
Make it safe & keep the rubber side down this week.
