All Students

  • Please hand in all of the explore, plan, and design work including your prototype for your name tag if you have not already done so.

Grade 7

  • Once students feel comfortable using Scratch they will be doing one of the following:
    • Create a presentation that is all about you. The purpose of this is to have you start figuring out some of the tools. Below is the criteria for this:
      • At least 3 things about yourself
      • At least one clickable thing
      • An image of yourself
      • At least one movement
      • At least one custom sprite or background\
      • At least one sound
      • Another way of interacting with your presentation besides clicking on something
    • More Advanced – Create something that is useful (think of a tool / program that can help people with some aspect of their life)


Grade 8

  • Once students feel comfortable using TinkerCad, through Project Ignite, and have finished the main tutorial they will be creating a 3D model of a tool or piece of equipment in the Construction and Design room.
    • To do this they go to TinkerCad and log in the same way.
    • The 3D model must be to scale and with an accuracy within 1 mm.
    • The more curves and angles an object has the more difficult it is to produce.

Grade 9

  • Many students continue to work on their name tags. Those that have finished are now starting to think about their independent projects. More information will be given about this in the next few classes.
