Notes

  • We have always been makers.
  • Build your inner-duck. No too are alike!
  • If all projects are the same, you have taught your students a recipe. This comes from telling students exactly how many slides to have in their PowerPoint.
  • They created a series of boxes. Each one has materials for 1 or 2 challenges. Directions in included in each box, or students can access online with a QR code.
