As we get into the reality of the last several weeks of school the majority of class time will be studio time. Today we were lucky to have a visit from Mr Grossman who will be teaching the Engineering course at our LPS campus next year. Students were able to get feedback from him and help in developing their prototypes to the next (final) level.

Andrew reconsiders his dimensions for his water filter
Renee hand drying her tie dye that will go on sale for Friday's rally (class colors!). Sales go to support her and Andrea's education initiative.

Jenica teaching herself how to 3D model with Fusion 360 (with a little help from Felipe)
Design Plans for prototypes 2.0 are due next week, students are required to indicate all parts of their projects. Posters were created to (hopefully) crowdsource our school to gather items to repurpose/recycle!
individuals and teams are prototyping for their Final Projects, beginning on their final design plans, and beginning to engage with the Stanford D School Design Methods in order to augment their process.
This week students were able to share their prototype 1.0s with the whole class and get positive and delta feedback from every one of their peers. Later in the week we cut our pages up into strips so everyone could read their feedback. Valuable feedback was .kept in their maker books to reflect back on during the design process. Sign ups for the Bay Area Maker Faire also happened!
