  • Drawbot frame

    Drawbot frame

    Lasercut cardboard + DIY vibration motor + markers of different sizes.Developed and used in the Mahtomedi Fablab. Built for quick experimentation by elementary students while using LittleBits. It features a large central platform to hold the battery and multiple pressfit holes to hold markers.

  • Light Trinket

    Light Trinket

    I was asked to create a short class that would introduce high school students to 3D printing, the laser cutter, digital design, circuits, and coding at the Mahtomedi High School Fablab. The result was this color changing trinket that students could attach to their backpacks.

    Homologous Bone Structure learning aid
  • Physical Programming

    I’ve always loved coding that people can physically interact with. It makes your digital work tactile and sometimes even a little magical. I’ve taught Physical Computing as a unit within other courses like Assistive Technology Engineering and as it’s own semester long course. Tools used: Projects:

  • Kitchen Chemistry

    Standards aligned high school chemistry curriculum that uses food and cooking to make science hands-on and relatable.

  • Assistive Technology Engineering

    Engineering course where students partnered with students in the district with physical and cognitive disabilities to create a device that will help them accomplish a task. 3 years

  • 3D Dream Makers Idea Challenge

    2014 Students with special needs often need tools and learning aids that are expensive or don’t exist. I started the Dream Makers Ideas Challenge at the Intermediate School District 916 to quantitatively measure the need, collect a list of things that are needed, and to generate awareness of 3D printing as a solution. After recruiting…
