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."

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.

Automating the survival of tomatosphere plants! Students have, and continue, to code moisture sensors to indicate when plants need to be watered. The sensor measures the moisture of the soil and then our microbit lights up the microbit LEDs with an icon to let us know the condition. We're working on attaching LED light strips that will be even more visual to let us know when the soil is dry. Eventually, we will code to get the lights on timers to ensure our tomatoes get enough light/darkness so they grow and produce fruit. Eventually, we'd like to extend it to our hydroponics project and make our soil-plants have their own self-watering apparatus.
Apprendre dans notre espace créatif naturel, c’est simplement expérimenter pour de vrai, c’est de voir nos élèves en action, heureux, des élèves qui s’entraident, qui mettent à profit leurs connaissances et leurs compétences et qui proposent ensemble des solutions et des stratégies.
