Just wanted everyone to know that next week is our last TAS class.

Class Notes: 05.16.2017 - 3D Print Making

We learned a little more about 3D modeling in today's class. I showed the kids what boolean operations are within a 3D modeling environment.

We used the online tool www.tinkercad.com to make a chicken-rabbit-plane (their free-flow idea). TinkerCad allows you to make a free account and actually export your model to be printed on a 3D printer.

Today's Class

Good morning! So, today in class we are going to continue to learn programming. We will be using Made With Code and Swift Playgrounds. Today's lesson is going to cover wifi. What is it and why we love and can't live without it.

We Have Some Pretty 'Swift' Learners!

This week we dove into the Swift programming language from Apple.

We started with Swift Playgrounds on the iPads and had a really great time!

Next week we will go over a couple of concepts that seemed to trip a few of us up.

  • Functions
  • Nested Functions
  • Loops

Remember: If you have an iPad that can run Playgrounds, GET IT! It's free and amazing! Practice! Practice! Practice!!
