If at first you don't succeed...
This group of 2nd graders had a lot of fun learning the basics of coding with Dash and Dot and the Blockly app. Collaboration, communication, problem solving, and critical thinking (and they had a blast!)Uploaded May 17, 2017by Amy Melle
Try, Try Again!!
After their first attempt "didn't work", they went back to the drawing board and figured out what to fix. As you can see, they were successful!Uploaded May 17, 2017by Amy Melle

Rube Goldberg trials
I love these videos. The kids were charged with making a Rube Goldberg machine that could feed a biscuit to a dog waiting under the table. What appear to be "failures" are actually invaluable for the growth mindset that we are trying to teach at SMS. They learned that you have to keep tweaking and trying! I am pretty sure that some of the kids went home and kept doing this. That is what I call lifelong learning!Uploaded Nov 10, 2016by Amy Melle
