    Estimated time: 30 minutes

     

    Quick things to know:  

    Mrs. Lovuolo's and Mr. Breeden's classes are all battling throughout the day in this one giant Kahoot Challenge that covers the "Types of Energy" that we learned in our stations activity recently.  WE all know who will win this!  :)

     

    Tasks

    •  Review?  Review the content of the Kahoot challenge by viewing the video presentation from yesterday again.  This review step is OPTIONAL.

     

     Be sure your name follows this format:

    • Breeden's classes:
      • Start with a "B - " and then your name.  It stands for "Best."  For example:
        • B - Murphy Jones
    • Lovuolo's classes:
      • Start with an "L - " and then your name.  It clearly stands for "Losers."  For example:
        • L - Beaker Smith

    NOTE: You can play as many times as you'd like.

    Date 3/23/20 

    Overview: Flux Challenge Day two! Build your prototype and make a FlipGrid video. Remember, the goal is to use problem solving and critical thinking skills to be creative and turn ordinary household products into a useful project.  The purpose is to be creative, have fun, and challenge yourself. 

     

    Estimated time: 30 minutes - that's not a long time; it's ok if your project isn't fully perfect!

     

    Quick things to know:  

    The prototype is like a rough draft of your invention.  The quality of the prototype is not what is important; it is the thinking, planning, problem solving, executing, presenting, and reflecting that are the most important aspects of the project. 

     

    Tasks

    • Build! Using your sketch and materials from Thursday, build your prototype.
      • Remember – It does not need to work, just needs to be a physical representation to help understand the concept and purpose.
    • Share! Create a simple 30-60 second FlipGrid video as a pitch to investors or as a commercial.  Be creative and have fun!  Feel free to have siblings, pets, or family members help you demonstrate! www.flipgrid.com/fluxcbsd
      • What is the purpose of the project you have built? 
      • How does it work? 
      • Who is this project designed for? 
      • What makes your project different/better than something that already exists?
      • What would you do differently next time? 
      • What’s your favorite part about this project? 
      • There are three flipgrid topics at the FlipGrid site; place your new video inside of the topic for your project.
      • Show off your prototype and use the following questions as a guide for what to talk to about.
    • The FLUX website encourages you to share on social media; you DO NOT need to do this step.
    • Tomorrow we Connect! We will spend a few minutes watching the creations of your classmates in FlipGrid and leave any constructive feedback you think they would benefit from hearing.

    Overview: Flux Challenge! Plan, BUILD, and experiment with a STEAM challenge designed by a former Central Bucks teacher!

     

    Estimated time: 30 minutes on each of the two days. That's tight - It's ok if your project isn't fully polished and perfect!

     

    Quick things to know:  

    What you end up making and how affective it works is not the purpose of this STEAM project.  It is the thinking, planning, problem solving, executing, presenting, and reflecting that are the most important aspects of the project. 

     

    Tasks

    • Understand! First, decided what challenge you are going to take on.  Visit https://fluxspace.io/fluxosc/ and watch the 6-minute video on the page introducing the FLUX challenges!  (HINT - consider adjusting the settings to 1.5 speed - look at that time savings!)  Also note, you do not need to hashtag and post to social media nor do you need to submit your project to the Flux company.  This is for us.  Post to them if you want and have parent permission.

    Choose! Scroll down on the site and read the three challenges that were posted this week (even if they are marked “CLOSED”). You may choose whichever one you'd like! Write down (on paper) which challenge you are going to try.   The current choices:

    1. Your Own Invention
    2. Make a Game
    3. Build a Bridge
    • Brainstorm!  Write down various ideas.  When you have decided on your design, answer these questions: 
      • Be specific about who that person is such as age, where they live, and occupation. 
      • What is the purpose of the project you are going to be building? 
      • Who is the target person this project is designed for?   
      • What will make your project different/better than something that already exists?
    • Create a sketch of your project. 
      • On your sketch, list the household materials you will need to build your prototype.  Remember, only use materials that you already have at home!  
    • Gather the materials you plan on using!
      • Use craft materials, recyclables, building blocks, sticks, etc. get creative and be resourceful!
    • TOMORROW - you will finish building your project and you will post an image/video on FlipGrid.com.  You'll see those directions tomorrow!  :)
