    Episode 6: Rube Goldberg Junkyard Wars

    Episode 6: Rube Goldberg Junkyard Wars

    Greetings!  It’s been a loooooong time since I’ve done one of these.  I’ve had child number 3 and all the sleeplessness that goes along with it.  But I am back! In today’s episode, we are talking about a project that I do in my class called the “Rube Goldberg Junkyard Wars”.  It’s really easy and you can do it by spending almost no money on supplies.



     



    You can get a copy of some of my projects and sign up for my email list here.

    Episode 4- Hour of Code

    Episode 4- Hour of Code

    Greetings everyone!  This week (December 4th-10th, 2017) is Computer Science Education Week!  We are celebrating this week by discussing our favorite resources to use with your students this week.





    Made with Code: This is created by Google.  It gives simple, easy to use projects for students to complete and code.  Geared more toward getting girls into coding, however, it is suitable for everyone.



    Google CS First: Geared toward students ages 9-14, CS First offers full curriculum to teachers and students.  Best of all, there is no experience needed!  As a teacher, if you know nothing about coding, this is a good place to go.



    Khan Academy: Lots to offer.  Computer programming, Javascript, HTML and more.  A little more advanced than CS first.  MS and HS routes.  Offers creation of classrooms or groups, and can sync with google classroom.



    Scratch and Scratch Jr.:  Graphical coding from MIT



    Thenewboston.com: Android app development, javascript, python, higher end programming, YouTube videos.



    Cubelets: Magnetic Blocks that attach to each other to perform a task.  Can be used as a stand-alone product or you can program them.



    Code.org: One of my favorites.  Very well done.  Longer and shorter lessons and all ages covered.



    Code Academy: Similar to Code.org or Madewithcode.com, this site offers a graphical way to program.



    Lego Mindstorms: EV3



    littleBits



    Makey Makey



    A list of A TON of resources: https://skillcrush.com/2016/03/15/64-online-resources-to-learn-to-code-for-free/



    This list is incomplete!  Do you have something you use in your class?  Share it with me.
