Just this week FableVision Learning (Peter & Paul Reynolds) released its newest software for young thinkers: Fab@School MAKER STUDIO! From the author and illustrator of The Dot, Ish, Sky Color, Going Places, Full Steam Ahead, and more comes an age appropriate design and construction platform for creating in 2D and 3D! I’ve been waiting for this software since it was introduced at ISTE 2015! Dr. Peggy Healy Stearns has shown great consideration for how our youngest makers learn to fabricate. There are pre-loaded projects, instructions on making others, and a blank canvas for new projects. The software even includes a 3D preview window for watching how the design will be constructed!
Our S.T.E.A.M. Club recently received donations from local dealerships – Washington Auto Mall and Mike Wood Toyota – in addition to having two DonorsChoose projects funded. The iPad mini will be loaded with apps for the ozobots, ollie, animation, coding, and more! The Silhouette Cameo works in conjunction with the Fab@School MAKER STUDIO software and will be a great addition to our S.T.E.A.M. Club. I can’t wait for S.T.E.A.M. Club to resume in the spring! The students will be excited to work with new technologies.
Thank you to all who donated!
