    Making is a passion that comes naturally to me.  But LEDs and circuitry are very new to me.  This June Instructables had a LED Build Night opportunity where makerspaces could apply for free materials.  I applied for our SP Design Lab as the hope this year is to expand beyond lunch hour and after-school to family and community nights.  SP Design Lab was selected and within a week I had more LEDs then I imagined.  My mission was to create two projects that K-5 students could do so that our first build night would happen at our back to school night.  I spent a good amount of time…

    Edwin Booth Did you know that Edwin Booth, brother of John Wilkes Booth, saved President Lincoln’s son’s life, prior to Lincoln’s assassination? It’s true! Edwin Booth was actually a nationally known Shakespearean actor, and happened to be in New Jersey at the time, coincidentally sharing a train platform with Robert Lincoln. Interestingly, Robert Lincoln knew exactly who Edwin Booth was, due to his fame as an actor, yet Booth did not know or recognize Lincoln.

  • Conni Mulligan: Traditional Storytelling–Shadow Puppetry & Overheads

    Trolling social media and DEN sites for those at and not at #DENSI2014, I found yet another wonderful resource from Conni Mulligan, who reinvents our notion of storytelling, digitally, at the #DENUnconference2014.

Best to let Conni tell you how this is done.
