3D Project Hits the Field
Fifth Graders Write Digital Safety Stories
After reading the book Webster's Email, the students have decided to write their own digital safety picture books. Each student selected a rule from the Gilmanton School Technology Contract and are writing their own creative story to teach the selected lesson. So far, they have written their first drafts of the story. Character creation comes next!
Watch their work develop here!

Tech Enrichment - Year 2 is Underway
After a successful trial year, Tech Enrichment classes are back! We are starting off the year with grades K-2, 3-4, and half of 7-8.
As an added bonus, we are excited to offer the opportunity for 8th graders to function as mentors for the K-2 Enrichment class. The positive response from our 8th grade students was overwhelming...so much so that we we will have to switch mentors partway through the year!
Here are some highlights from last year. New pictures and information coming soon...
This sixth grader wanted to make a "living" piece of artwork using gears. She designed one gear from scratch using TinkerCAD, then learned about scale to create both larger and smaller versions of the gear. Here you can see her putting it all together!
8th grader Emily in taking on the challenge of learning Python using Code Academy!
This sixth grader designed his own coat hook in the likeness of the Pirahna Plants in Super Mario Bros. He created the coat hook in three parts: pot with screw holes, hook (the pirahna), and a pin to hold it all together! The most impressive part is the Improve/Redesign phases that he went through. An example of perseverance and dedication!
