Mathews Maker Movement: Build, Help, Learn!

Dear Mathews family,

Please mark your calendars as our next installment of Maker Movement is happening from Tuesday, February 23rd to Thursday, February 25th!

This month, we will support our wonderful technology teacher, Mrs Sanders, during your child’s Maker Lab period. We need an extra 4 adults during each period to help her with Makey Makey projects and possibly Little Bits in older grades (stay tuned for more information). These specific projects are designed to introduce/reinforce circuitry skills in a fun way. Please check the calendar on the sign-up genius here for your child’s period, and volunteer!

This is a great opportunity to stay connected with your child’s classroom while helping out and having fun! The kids will be so excited to work on this right after STEAM day (coming up on February 19th).

Here’s a link showing the endless possibilities of the Makey Makey kit:

Let us know as always if you have any questions! We will get back to our volunteers with more information soon.

Thank you for all you do, we could not do it without you!
