MT. LEBANON SCHOOLS · 2017
The creation of Howe Elementary’s Matt’s Maker Space in 2016 also came with the introduction of a coding curriculum. The space includes a number of different coding tools, including BlueBots, Spheros, and Puzzlets, electronics kits, and other maker tools like 3D printers, a Cricut, and a button maker. The space is used during class time, lunch, recess, and also after school by various clubs and teams, including Odyssey of the Mind.
Students have created models of Mt. Lebanon, recycled self-portraits inspired by the art of Hanoch Piven, projects in response to readings like Tuck Everlasting and Probuditi, and imagined robots to stop wildfire spread. During distance learning, students are delving into 3D modeling and printing!
