2nd TERM TECHNOLOGY PROJECTS

And just like that 2nd term has come and gone! In technology class, we have been working on a super cool PBL project related to 3D printing. That wasn't completely new for us because in October we had gone to visit the exhibition "3D printing the world" (Espacio Fundación Telefónica).

              At the beginning of the term, we were visited by a group of preschool students who presented us with toys that had been broken. The students asked us if we could doctor the toys and make them better, so they could be played with again.

            Before we could get to work on printing out new parts, we had to learn about 3D design and 3D printing. We learned about the printing process, starting with the design and finishing with post-production, the parts of the printer, as well as the different types of filaments we can use for 3D printing.

            Armed with this knowledge, we measured our toys and modeled our ideas for new parts using clay. Once we had sketched our designs, we moved to the computer room. Here we created the 3D designs to be printed using the online application, Tinkercad.

            This term has been challenging, but students have really familiarized themselves with 3D printing and gotten a good grasp on Tinkercad. This has also been a fantastic opportunity for students to show off their creativity. We have come up with some really great ideas and we can´t wait to print them out and show them off. Check back soon to see the final products!!

FIRST TERM TECHNOLOGY PROJECTS

Wow! First term in technology was a great one! 

We did all kinds of things to get educated on the technological process. For starters- we did 'The Marshmallow Challenge', an activity in which students had only 3 materials (spaghetti noodles, string, and tape) to use in order to build the tallest possible free standing structure. Through this activity, students learned the importance of planning, as well as, the necessity of creating a good prototype.

We then took this idea, along with our knowledge of the technological process to start our first project of the year. The project was presented as PBL (Problem base learning) where we had to design a device to prevent water damage or protect a tablet from water damage.

Students had to create a device, but had several constraints to work around including being environmentally friendly and a firm deadline. Once students had their ideas, it was off to the drawing board! First they did a sketch of their product, followed by a technical drawing. We then moved to the technology workshop where students were able to actually create their products.

Perhaps, the most fun part of the projects was when the students had to become sales men and women and pitch their product to the class! Students got into the occasions and did this in the style of a commercial.

It was a great term of hands on learning and we're excited to continue learning this way. During the 2nd term we will be working on a project using the school's 3D printer!

In 4th of ESO, we are doing HOT HITS!, where students will get to show off their creativity by finding a deeper meaning to a song of their choice and bringing music to the classroom!

Students really took the project seriously and showed off their creativity with these campaigns.

We have seen some truly incredible posters, clever slogans, and informative video campaigns! This has been an excellent experience for us to learn to recognize the signs of bullying as well as what we can do to stop it.
