Below is the email I received. Hopefully, the space will reopen soon. 

Good afternoon Greg

Thank you for your submission to the 2018 HundrED x Education Changemakers Spotlight on Victorian Education Innovation. Along with our friends at Atlassian, we were so impressed by the calibre of submissions; we received close to 50!

As you are aware, we are spotlighting 10 Innovations from across the State of Victoria. We’re pleased to throw you a high five and let you know that your submission has been shortlisted and is currently in the top 20.

We don’t need anything from you right now, just hold hight and make sure you give yourself a high five; this is braggable stuff!

Again, kudos not only on the submission but the excellent work you’re doing to improve the life and learning outcomes of young Victorians.

Creativity Club update

Thursday, March 29th, 2018

The creativity club (aka maker space) will be using one of the new spacious, well-lit rooms on level 3. Most of the contents have been moved from the old space, tools will be replenished over Easter and we are almost ready to go!

Some primary teachers have shown an interest in utilising the space for their technology project too.

some ideas/prompts/inspiration for student projects:

– rube goldberg machines (https://www.rubegoldberg.com/) from salvaging old electronics
– paper mechatronics
– paper circuits, combining paper and simple electronic circuits
– e-textiles, sewing and simple electronics
– Simone Giertz, the Queen of Shitty Robots, http://www.simonegiertz.com/about/ & https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3KEoMzNz8eYnwBC34RaKCQ
– paper automato
– japanese Karakuri & Origami combined with simple electronics/motors
looking forward to our new space 🙂
