2/4/2016 - CHS Techlings Return to CIS

On Thursday, January 28th, the CHS Techlings visited Canton Intermediate School for the second time this year. The Techlings were greeted with enthusiasm by the fourth graders who were eager to try out the Makey Makey and Littlebits.

Makey Makey - MaKey MaKey is an invention kit for the 21st century. Turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet. It's a simple Invention Kit for Beginners and Experts doing art, engineering, and everything in-between. Check it out at http://www.makeymakey.com/

Littlebits - LittleBits is a platform of easy-to-use electronic building blocks that empower you to invent anything, from your own remote controlled car, to a smart home device. The Bits snap together with magnets, no soldering, no wiring, no programming needed. Check it out at http://littlebits.cc

Makey Makey and Littlebits are available for all students to use in the CHS Library Media Center Maker Space.  

The CHS Techlings are available for all your technology needs. The team will be stationed in the LMC most Fridays.  Teachers, you can also e-mail me for specific issues or to book a Techling to work with you.
