Believe it or not, this is the fourth week of summer camp! I have been following www.makercamp.com every day. I don't always make the projects, but I am taking notes for future tinkering. Today's project was making a mechanical moving toy, an automata.
Speaking of Tinkering, I am also enrolled in a Coursera course called "Tinkering Foundamentals". Today I am going to try soldering circuits. This is a free MOOC class put on by the Exploritorium in San Francisco. Very enjoyable.
Oh, I forgot I also just started a Social Media course.
I really enjoy participating in these classes. Not only do they peak my interest but I will hopefully find some activities to do with students this year.
I did just realize that August starts on Saturday so that means lots of prep to get ready for the start of classes.....yikes. So much to do, so little time.
