PAECT Student Technology Showcase

Today was the annual PAECT Student Technology Showcase at our state Capitol building in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Twelve amazing students from Maker's Club joined Mrs. Greleski and I to represent how the students at our school use technology. We had two tables set up. One table
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.
