Makey-Makey Makes More Movements!

This just in from 3D World-er Charles Gerber, 277Q:

“I felt inspired after the last 3D world PD and I wanted to show you the new controller I made for one of my students with limited fine motor movements so they can participate more independently in our Thursday community days!  I put it on top of a metal counter so that all he needs to do is lay his opposite hand on the counter to complete the circuit! Looking forward to some gained independence! Have a great afternoon”

It’s Going Down

I had an unusual 3D World experience last week, when the entire world started shaking. Earthquake? The countdown clock signaled the end of the world…

I have never see a region go down before.

Brooklyn Park Renamed

As we stated in a previous post, 176X won the contest for the best apartment design (individual) for their stunning Tipton Apartment #7. According to 176X teacher Jessica Hawk,

“We are excited to finally announce that we’ve come to a unanimous decision in regards to what we would like our prize area and name to be.

We’ve chosen Brooklyn Park and would like to call it “Hawk’s Nest” as a tribute to our family 3D world name.”

So requested, so done.

Be sure to stop by Hawk’s Nest park during the Block Party to enjoy all the rides and attractions!
