Movie Making with ‘TechMates’.

This term TechMates (girls from grades 4 – 6 and a significant male in their lives) were invited to design and create a prototype of an invention. They immediately got to work coming up with a solution to an idea of a problem or a way to have a more convenient life! Once the prototype was created, TechMates set about recording and promoting the product using green screen technology.




We enjoyed hearing and watching some amazing ideas including: ScarePie Helmet, Collectomatic, Boomerang ball, Thinkanator, Transformation 3000, ShoeWind 2000, Blaster Glasses, Food Fantastic 4000, Phone Alarm Hat, hat, Ballet Mops, Muddy Paws No More …….oh …….

….. and we ate popcorn while watching!
