showcased our project with HIP Academy where we are using technology to help a school in Kenya, Africa with their education. We showed animals, letters, and other learning tools we made on our 3D printer. We also had a stack of books our students had written for the students in Africa. Many of the books even had translations from Swahili to English. The other table had the robots we made and coded in maker's club and other items we made such as 3d printed prosthetic hands.
All of the students had the opportunity to tour the beautiful Capitol building. They witnessed a second amendment protest and even got to sit in on the house in session. The building is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen! Below are some pictures, including some 360 photos of the Capitol Building. I hope you will take the time to view all of it.

Our project included students taking home the air quality meters and testing their homes, cars, community shops, and any other place they thought might be interesting to test.
Soon they had books full of data. They transferred their data into a Google Sheet and shared it among all students in the classroom. Students formed groups to study the all the data they had gathered. They had temperature, humidity, HCHO, TVCO and places where air quality had been tested. Using the data, they made decisions and created charts and graphs. Below are the students' SMART amps portraying their conclusions.

Today we mailed our first post to HIP Academy in Africa. The parcel was small, because we want to make sure everything arrives safe and sound, before we begin to bombard them with everything we have to give them. Our parcel includes some 3D printed letters and animals, four student written books (one written from English to Swahili) and some Robotic Rhino pens. We hope everything arrives safely and we will anxiously await word!
