These are some wild times we live in... so let's do some wild activities! Below are some fun activies you can do at home, with something for everyone!
If you do any of these, I would LOVE to see what you do and make!
Stop Motion Video!
For the uninitiated, stop motion animation is a film making technique that makes inanimate objects appear to move on their own. Think Gumby or Wallace and Gromit.
To make it work, you place an object in front of a camera and snap a photo. You then move the object a tiny bit and snap another photo. Repeat this process twenty to ten thousand times, play back the sequence in rapid progression, and the object appears to move fluidly across the screen.
Make some noise!
Below is an instructable for a series of instruments you can make at home! Ideas range from a homeade "flute" to a "saxaphone"

If you wanted to get a little... medieval, make a really cool catapult! I admit, I've made a lot of catapults in my day, but this one is powerful, durable and easy to make!
Lets Rise Above
Got some Spaghetti, tape and a marshmallow and see how high you can build! This activity has been used throughout schools and universities around the world to teach problem solving, prototyping, design, team building and so much more!
Mr. Demchak's blog
Welcome to my Blog. You will see information that pertains to the educational world in which I happily live.
I am a teacher for the next 30 years (unless beanie babies get valuable again...) but forever a student and my blog reflects this.
Hello! My name is Michael Demchak and I'm a Technology Education teacher! And if you couldn't tell by the exclamation point... I love it.
