We tested the truck cranes, modified them to try to improve them, and then tested them again. One crane arm was able to pick up about 60 rubber bands during the test!
We finished our pioneer homes today. The students combined all of their plots of land to create one pioneer mansion. They were very creative with it. One student had the front wall, door, and front yard, another student created the main living area of the home, and the other student created the outhouse, hen house, and shed. Great job! Other students continued coding with tutorials on code.org. They tried out many tutorials including Flappy Bird, Tynker, Minecraft, and Light Bot. They each selected one tutorial to use next time that meet.
