Learning coding? Building robots? It's elementary — elementary school, that is
from The Kansas City Star
Nine-year-old Reid Stainbrook is already an old pro at using a 3-D printer after only a few hours of working with it. He's grown comfortable with the technology at the Spark16150 lab at Arbor Creek Elementary in Olathe. "It's probably one of the easiest things" in the lab, Reid said. His next project? To make a plastic tennis ball that won't break when he uses it to play with his dog. Nearby, 9-year-old Colin Johnson was using special building blocks called Cubelets to make some special structures. One of his best projects was a lighthouse with a light that actually spins. He also demonstrated how he could use a Bluetooth connection with his iPad to make the blocks move.
