pacmanWe celebrated Teen Tech Week March 7th through 11th with a new display this year. Ms. Pacman made her debut as sticky-note art. Kids thought it was great and were excited about trying out some others. Students could also play our version of Angry Birds. We had six bad piggies on a pyramid of boxes. Students could throw a ball 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. In addition, we went low-tech during the week. Students were able to make popsicle stick bows and used q-tips as arrows. They were able to make these fly up to 25 feet!

1000017182-1We 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.

We celebrated Teen Tech Week in the library March 10th through 16th and featured a Technology Museum this year. The students enjoyed viewing the “ancient” technology and asked some great questions about the displays. Featured were 35mm film cameras from 1976, a slide projector from the 60s, an 8-track tape player from the 60s, an 8 mm projector from the 60s, a Word Processor from the early 90s, and a reel to reel Tapecorder from the 60s. The displays featured QR codes which explained each item in greater detail. Students asked media center staff for one of the tablet PCs to scan the codes when they visited. In addition, QR codes on Web 2.0 tools and Book Trailers were displayed in the stacks too. In addition to the Tech Museum, we created some floppy disk art that the kids thought was pretty cool.
