We will be sharing ideas around connecting computer science with the engineering design process by connecting games created in Makecode Arcade & other coding sites with Makey Makey and Arcade controllers. We'll use a variety of tools and materials to create working arcade consoles that connect to our computers. Bring: Teacher Computer.3. K-5 Low tech engineering design units! (James Justus and Monica Winkler) at Village East. We will be talking about how to plan for and create low-tech engineering design units. We will also be sharing out scope and sequences for our current units. I do Lego Engineers Kinder and 1st, Structures in 2nd, bridges in 3rd, flight in 4th, and force and motion (catapults) in 5th. Monica also has a bunch she can share out as well. The focus will be on how we planned for and created the 4th grade flight unit but happy to talk about all the units!
