|Lego™ designed in sketchup|
Yesterday we had a 40th anniversary open house at the school. Today we celebrate the 40th at Eureka Palooza, a music festival sponsored by the school. The weather will be perfect for this event. Tomorrow we have a brunch at the historic Crescent Hotel.
At Eureka Palooza I had woodworking activities for kids from about 1-4 PM.Children, some with the help of their mothers or dads, made flip cars and tops.
I've completed my own sketchup illustration for making a standard lego.™ I plan to write out a set of dimensional instructions so that my students can create the basic block in sketchup and then begin to personalize their own lego™ for 3-D printing. It would be far too expensive to make our own legos™ but personalizing student legos™ is an exciting way to get them interested in design, and requires them to follow an exacting set of instructions like they may have to do in real life.
Make, fix and create...
