Below Is what I have/will be sending to all students. It is a project based activity that I hope will be fun to create. It can be as elaborate  as they choose.  It's ca lab/stem project. As always any questions just email me.

 

Howdy! I let your teachers and parents know that I have sent this to you for a lab assignment. Have fun.

2) Research some facts;  example - Who was Rube Goldberg? You will need to place a fact that you find somewhere in or on your machine( just write it on a piece of paper and tape it somewhere).
3) The machines can be as detailed as you can dream up.
4) If you need help communicating with your peers (or me - marcocciop@sfusd.edu ) to try and solve issues.
5) DO NOT be concerned about failed attempts( it's not working). They are a GOOD THING :). The important thing is to keep on trying.
