Skyping Puts Students at South Carolina Aquarium

Mr. Fischer's class skypes with an expert at the South Carolina Aquarium.

River otters swam around and around, gracefully gliding through the water and bobbing their heads up every few minutes to see what was going on. It was a one-of-a-kind view for Lee Elementary students as they watched the otters from the rocks high above the water enclosure at the South Carolina Aquarium. No - it wasn't a lavish field trip. Using Skype technology in Lee Elementary's Makerspace room, Mr. Fischer's second-grade class interacted with Susan Snide, a distance learning interpreter for the aquarium.

Lee Elementary Makerspace Inspires Visitors

East Grand Rapids administrators watch a demonstration of how Lee Elementary teachers use Legos in the Makerspace room to teach math lessons

Blue, green, yellow, orange and white Lego pieces were stacked in varying heights representing different fractions. At a nearby table, Little Bits were used to turn wheels and make lights go on and off demonstrating simple circuits. And later, students used their ingenuity and creativity as they tried to build the tallest tower possible using 100 Keva Planks.
Lee Elementary School's Makerspace room was in the spotlight and guests from East Grand Rapids Schools were impressed.
