What should we make today?
If I could wake up every morning and have that be the first idea to pop into my head... then I would be a happy person.
Making things makes me happy. I like repairing things around the house by myself, in fact the frustrating things are often the most fun. I like solving puzzles and creating my own solutions. I like to build. Most people do, they just don't know it yet.

What can you make with your students?
The first step is the most difficult.
Here are five ideas and products to get started creating with your students.
Spheros! - remote controlled rolling balls programmed via iPad or iPhone
LegoLeague - kits and projects ready to make right out of the box
Scratch - learn to program with this free download from MIT
Arduino - make your own programmable circuit board
Makey Makey - ever wanted to play piano on a banana?
