https://blvr.ca/LgRWuEf/admired-infatuated-adventure create a virtualA maze that students could play in the Oculus quest 2. Made it in BLVR.ca this is a website to create a virtual world. We made it on a PC but it was made to play in the oculus quest 2. We first did a paper version of the maze and then create it bloc by bloc on the website.
Our project involves a cross-curricular application of creative problem solving through 3D design. Students learned the basics of Tinkercad and 3D design. They each selected an animal to learn about and design. Students had the opportunity to engage in writing projects and apply geometric principles in addition to learning new technological skills.

LED Lightsaber

What if I combined two things I love into a fun project? "I created the lightsaber with fluorescent light tube packaging, a strip of neopixels, some paint, some wires and electronics, and 3D printed pieces. First, I coded the neopixels to turn on and off with a pin press using a Bboard and microbit. I then modeled the hilt using Tinkercad and 3D printed it in several pieces. Next, I painted the plastic with acrylic paint and paint markers, then coated it with modge podge to both seal in the paint and give it a more matte and glossy finish. I used hot glue to hold the plastic together and soldered the wires together, and did the same with an on/off switch. I attached the wires to the Bboard, as they did not need to be soldered into place. Lastly, the tube fitted snugly into the rainguard, finishing the lightsaber."

Plant Wall

We built a plant wall to learn about using power tools and to make the air fresher because of Covid -19. "Collected all materials including wood, hooks and buckets Measured the length of the wood Sawed the wood to the right length Drilled 3 holes in each piece of wood Stain the wood Planted the plants Hung the plants on the wood with the hooks Hung the plant wall in school"

This is a project to build a house for the birds in my backyard "After researching on the web I discovered that each type of bird has certain features they like to see in a birdhouse. I wanted to build a house for a wren or a chickadee. The other bird houses in my backyard have starlings in it, which prefer a bigger hole and a bigger house. The birdhouse needed to be made out of natural products (wood), and with paint only on the outside. I chose not to put a perch as I read that birds can get in and out without one. The entrance hole for a wren is at 1 inch and 1/8th. I drew the pieces of the bird house on a piece of paper with a ruler to make sure the pieces would fit together. Than I drew the lines on a wood board for my father to cut the pieces with a power saw. Then I marked the pieces in the locations they would be joined together using wood biscuits and glue. Once the pieces were marked, my father used an electric biscuit joiner to cut the slots for the biscuits. I them put all the pieces of wood for the bird house walls and bottom together with out glue, using the biscuits on their own just to make sure everything fit. I then disassembled and reassembled the birdhouse walls, but this time also using wood glue and let the project dry overnight. The two pieces for the roof were added also using glue but with wood screws instead of biscuits. After painting the bird house in natural brown, I installed a metal frame under the house, so a long hollow metal pole could screw into it. We then planted the pole in the ground so that the birdhouse was high up, to keep birds safe."
