Printing iPad Stands for Stop-Motion Animation

Our Makerbot Replicator Z18 was hard at work printing iPad stands for the iPad Movies: Stop-Motion Animation workshop held at the district office. Here you can see four of them mid-print.

Here is an iPad stand supporting a phone. Note how we taped the phone to the stand, and the stand to the table, to minimize jiggling.

More Next Level Wands

From a student at 231K

Next Level Maker

This student made three next-level wands, using the advanced bubble wand template. I cannot see which one is the middle white one.


Moon and Star Wand

A teacher made it, but still SO beautiful! (Did not make great bubbles btw)

Kitty Cat Bubble Wand

So cute!

Exotic Bubbles

As the STEM 3D-printing bubble-wand-creation activity continues to percolate throughout the district, students are learning and discovering new things about the nature and physics of bubbles.

For example, regardless of the shape of the wand: square, circular, triangular, or heart-shaped —

— or even butterfly shaped —

the bubbles will be spherical.

But what about double-bubbles? Or triple bubbles? Or raspberry bubbles?

Students discovered that wands with split or multiple openings create exotic bubbles.

Also, bubbles can be stretched between two different wands, as long as there is plenty of bubble juice on each wand.

Beginner Wands and Next Level

The students of 771K at 236 in Mill Basin Brooklyn enjoyed using the 3Doodler to make bubble wands. One student made all four on the beginner’s sheet:

Then the class teacher took her turn: she made a next-level pony wand!
