Tierra Bonita Elementary School
Melody was able to experience our fourth grade Maker Town Faire. Fourth graders were working on creating a project from scratch, designing, measuring, creating, constructing, and "selling" it with their peers. It was quite an exciting adventure. She is pictured with the group that got the most tokens from the visitors at the Faire. Visitors each received one token which they could "vote" for which product they would like to really buy if it were in a store. The winner was this "Confetti Bomb." Recycled from a small water bottle, it was covered with Duct tape and had a little shelf that could be raised to let torn paper, confetti, rise to the top.
We learned that during the Faire and Melody's visit, we needed to account for enough space for her to get around and maneuver throughout her time. She would be able to see everything from her angle and I think she would have appreciated all the ingenuity of the Maker's Faire.
