During our full-school enrichment block, students were invited to enter the new JGMS Innovation and Design Lab for MakerSpace activities to create, collaborate, problem-solve, code and have fun. Thoughtful preparation, a good provisioning of resources and creative hands-on/minds-on STEAM activities are a good recipe for student engagement. During the block, students moved through stations to design their own eyeball maze, film their own scary floating head horror movie, code the mysterious Sphero ball, engineer a pumpkin elevator or utilize cut apples and fruit to artfully "paint" t-shirts. Great job to Ms.Kim Comeiro, Ms. Lynda McGraw and Dr. Mehler for their fine orchestration and execution of organized innovative chaos. The students were impressive!
