Year 6 Disaster Unit
Don’t Spoil the Endgame Year 8 Activity
This blog is my more “unofficial” makerspace site. Our other one is at https://allhallowsschoollibrary.com/
So please look at this site for a more extensive coverage of our library makerspace activities.
We offer 2 makerspace programs. The one called Makerspace runs in our McAuley Library before school and at lunchtimes. All students are welcome, but most attendees are in Years 5 or 6.
The other program is called Cre8 Lab, offered in Potter Library at lunchtime, mainly in the first 4 weeks of each term. It offers more complex activities, so students sign up for these and they usually require commitment to several lunchtimes, or more. Some of these activities are limited to certain grades due to complexity.
We also endeavour to connect makerspace activities into classes, so this does happen regularly e.g. 3D printing and El Wire in secondary Home Economics, 3D printing with ICT classes, various makerspace crafts with Year 5 and 6, often involving electronics and 3D printing, and stop motion with Arts students.
There are many reasons, but the following document provides some reasons for why we use MinecraftEDU in our sustainable housing unit:
