Pourquoi une boîte de créativité ?

La capacité de création des élèves est certainement plus grande que la taille de la boîte de création. L’équipe de Labos créatifs sait que l’espace est précieux dans les salles de classe.


Nous avons donc rassemblé, à l’intérieur d’une petite boîte «très difficile à endommager », tous nos gadgets favoris pour inspirer la créativité en salle de classe.
Nous vous encourageons à trouver quelques tables solides pour y disposer chaque composant. Bref, créez votre propre station de création! Il importe cependant de ne pas oublier que ces boîtes circulent dans toute la province : assurez- vous de prendre soin de tous les composants de la boîte de création pour que la prochaine classe puisse avoir autant de plaisir que vous.

Maintenant, il ne vous reste plus qu’à retrousser vos manches et à fabriquer quelque chose de créatif!

 
Contenu de la boîte

En toute franchise, il s’agit de la version 3.0 de la boîte de création. Nous avons soigneusement choisi chacun des composants de la boîte de façon à maximiser la créativité. Il est important de comprendre que même si nous avons utilisé ces composants dans divers projets au Canada atlantique, Labos créatifs n’est pas le fabricant de ces produits. Nous vous offrons un soutien ci- dessous en vous dirigeant vers les sites Web des fabricants d’origine. Nous vous encourageons aussi à trouver des solutions aux problèmes auxquels vous pourriez être confrontés pendant l’utilisation de la boîte de création.

Monoprice Mini 3D printer

Your students will be amazed how well this little printer can print!

3D printing is an excellent way to get your students designing solutions and entering the world of rapid prototyping.  

Mini Janome sewing machine

Don't less the size fool you! This sewing machine can handle lots!

Looking to create wearable technology or integrate sewing in math class?  This little sewing machine is a great place to start!

MakeyMakey x 2

These are so much fun we included 2!

Makey Makeys are a great way for students to create their own interfaces, explore conductivity, and be introduced to physical computing and the relationship between software and hardware.  Scratch and Makey Makeys are a perfect match!

littleBits STEAM kit

...like legos, but electrified!

Click them together and welcome to rapid prototyping!

Spark Fun Creators Kit

Introduction to Arduino

Arduinos can be intimidating but this kit is a fantastic introduction to the fun world of micro controllers!

Hummingbird Duo Kit

Prototyping and robotics at your fingertips

We're often amazed at what students can create with these kits!  An easy entry in to robotics and prototyping with a friendly interface :)

mBot Robot

The cutest robot around.

You may not be able to use this robot as a fully-functioning autonomous car to taxi you around town, but this little robot can serve as the perfect model. The mBot allows your students to create complex, interactive robotics using the mBot's ultrasonic sensor and line-following sensor. In addition to the ease of assembly, the software used to program this little robot is based off of Scratch by MIT and can show your students a side-by-side version of their code in arduino. We can't wait to see what your students create. 

Raspberry Pi 3 Kit

A full functioning, miniature computer.

This Raspberry Pi Kit contains all of the accessories that your student will need to create an interactive exhibit. These tiny devices come pre-packaged with Scratch and other useful programming software. It's up to you to decide how deep you go with this product. 

Wearable Electronics Kit

Add a little razzle-dazzle to your favourtie garment!

Wearable electronics is one of the most exciting fields of electronics. When used correctly, the components within this bag combine to create an article of clothing that is truly responsive and illuminating. The learning curve on these components may be a little steeper than others. 

Snap Circuits Extreme

Perhahps the easiest way to introduce your students to electronics.

Snap Circuits have been around for quite some time. The super-sized components are great for the smallest of hands. Students can learn the fundamentals of electronics as they set their eyes on more complex projects. 

Assorted Maker Tools

All of the tools your students may need.

Just like any other field of study, one requires the right tools for best outcome. Your  makercart contains the same tools we have lying around our workbench. Your tool kit includes: wire cutters, wire strippers, soldering iron, soldering iron stand, solder sucker, solder wick, solder, multi-meter, PCB vice, and some assorted electronic parts. 

Small and Large Breadboards

Hooray for solderless electronics!

Sometimes you need to prototype an electronic project as quick as you can. These breadboards allow you to attach power, ground and any other breadboard ready component your project requires. There is plenty of space on these boards to integrate several projects. Perhaps you want to embed a breadboard within your project, simply build a 3D printer case around your breadboard and you are all set. 

Invent to Learn

The complete TEACHER guide to the Maker Movement

Dr. Gary Stager and Sylvia Libow-Martinez have been researching the effects of the Maker Movement on students ever since they studied under the Maker himself: Dr. Seymour Paper at MIT. This easy-to-read book is complete with pedagogical philosophy as well as extensive resource lists for most of the devices that you will find in the makercart. 

The Maker Movement Manifesto

In case you want to know where this movement came from...

This great teacher resource was written by Mark Hatch, owner and CEO of the Tech Shop Makerspaces throughout the United States. This exciting read takes you through the rise of the Maker Movement and how it very-well may be the next industrial revolution. 

Sylvia's Super Awesome Project Book

Your go-to source for simple Arduino Classroom Projects

If you don't know Super Awesome Sylvia, you will by the time you finish her book. This bright young-engineer has been making for quite some time. Take a gander through this book and you will be on your way to creating interactive electronics.
