#GlobalMakerDay

Today, our class took part in #GlobalMakerDay. This day allowed for students to use their creativity to plan, design and implement their ideas. We had students who decided to do hands on challenges, which included creating a structure for an egg drop challenge, creating hamster toys and creating fidget toys for social emotional learning. Other students decided to work digitally, building structures using Minecraft, creating their own structures using other digital tools and many other impressive projects.
