This is the beginning of a Swiss Cheese Chair movement!
This Swiss Cheese Chair is the first only 3D print file that I ever designed myself from scratch. Apparently, the folks at MakerBot headquarters in Brooklyn, NYC loved it! I texted Drew at MakerBot after this was posted, and he said since the print comes out so well and is a fast print, ...

While the hallway still teems with kids moving from class to class, the door to the classroom quietly opens and shuts, noise filtering in bursts. The first three students arrive, to a quiet and ready classroom--the work reminders for the day bright on the interactive wall of the lab.

Wow. That gif is...gify. Now that I have your attention, if you haven't used Kahoot! in your classroom yet, you're in for a real treat. Kahoot! is full of user-created ready-made interactive quiz games that make Jeopardy buzzer systems completely and utterly irrelevant. Sorry, Alex Trebec.

Hey +STEMteachersNYC +STEMteachersPHX +STEM Teacher Institute ! My latest lesson on coding with middle schoolers.  I teach this mini-unit with 6th graders using Chromebooks. It blends coding with Language Arts, so your LA teachers are going to love this assignment.  You could even try it as an integrated unit.

I've been in hundreds of classrooms, but this one is the best one.
While the hallway still teems with kids moving from class to class, the door to the classroom quietly opens and shuts, noise filtering in bursts. The first three students arrive, to a quiet and ready classroom--the work reminders for the day bright on the interactive wall of the lab.

Chief STEM Education Game Changer
Introduction
I'm a mom, science teacher and blogger (in that order). Although I've been teaching for a lot longer than I've been a mom (18 years teaching), those little ones kind of take over once they get here, don't they--to my great joy!  I think being a mom has helped me to be a better teacher and it DEFINITELY helped me to become a better blogger--STL is my second blog--the first one was one to share pictures of the kids with my family and friends.
