Does It Really Fly? MakerSpace Helicopter

On Friday afternoons, the first through fifth graders have "Genius Hour," a time when they can pursue a personal interest or passion by themselves or with each other. There are kids on the computers coding, kids perusing Google Earth, kids reading, writing, researching or drawing, kids playing math games, kids tinkering in the MakerSpace.

This is a first grade Navigator showing his classmates his MakerSpace helicopter with a real spotlight. Ingenious! One boy asked him, "Where did you get the cog?" After a brief look of what?!,  the kids all continued on without skipping a beat having learned a new vocabulary word through conversation and context.

Genius Hour at its best!

Parents, please keep sending those cogs and beads and unique containers to us!
