We celebrated Teen Tech Week last week with the theme “Libraries Are For Making“. As students visited the library, I showed them how to make LED throwies from LEDs, button batteries, magnets, and duct tape. Once completed, students could throw them at a filing cabinet for storage until the end of the day. Instructions for the project can be found at Instructables.com. Students could also play our version of Angry Birds. We had six bad piggies on a pyramid of boxes. Students could throw a stuffed Angry Bird at the pyramid to try to knock down all bad piggies. The media center also showcased a Technology Museum filled with old video controllers, typewriters, cameras, 8-track tape players and more.
