The media center was busy this week with Squishy Circuits, book club and our first lunch & learn. Sixth, Seventh &
Eighth grade tech clubs learned how open and closed circuits work by building and designing their own circuits. Using a Squishy Circuits kit, students connected their battery power pack to a special homemade conductive playdoh that has extra salt added to the recipe. Students chose colored LED lights, sensors, buzzers and motors to complete the circuit. Their one of a kind creations were quite creative. The students have been challenged to create an invention with their Squishy Circuits for the next tech club!
Lunch & Learns will be offered every two weeks on Wednesdays in the Think Lab. Everyone is invited to attend. This week we learned some Google Tips & Tricks! Click on the graphic below to see the presentation.
Book club met on Friday to start the book Fish by L. S. Matthews. The book highlights a family’s struggle as they are forced to leave their homeland. Students spent time discussing the topic of modern refugees and the challenges they face.
Students also learned how to make book trailers. Over the next few weeks students will produce their own book trailers for the students at WOMS!
