Sarah's 2nd & 3rd grade class was able to experiment with sound using the laptop computer's microphone, which captured the volume of their clapping through the website: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/2806153/. They played a game creating different patterns with beats and the classroom had to follow together.
We also were fortunate to meet more of our volunteers from Duquesne University, who assist with tutoring and stay long enough to play at the end of the day!
All in all it has been a great start to the program; we have dabbled with delectable snacks, we entertained with the power of science and technology, and we are learning more about life every day. Be sure to stay up-to-date with us this year, and check back on our blog often! We appreciate your support, and we hope these ideas help you out!
Until next time!
