Weather Fairies and Weather Frogs

In Germany, weather women are called Weather Fairies and the men are called Frogs.  (The things you learn working in a library!)  For a few days this week, students from German class talked about the weather in different countries (in German of course), and we helped them use the green screen to make their reports more interesting.  Below are a couple of pictures of some of the students hamming it up and a great video of some preliminary takes of a Weather Frog.

Hour of Code

We celebrated Hour of Code the entire day in the SHS Library. Dr. Dawkins’s students presented and explained their Scratch projects to parents and district office personnel. In the video, you can watch parents and Dr. Booker trying out games the students created. While this was taking place, Mr. Babcock introduced students to http://code.org/learn and the different coding possibilities there. During lunch, Mr. Lipp, an electronics and robotics instructor from Daniel Morgan Technology Center, set up electronics and robots and explained how they worked. You can see Mr. Babcock talking with a robot in the video below!
