Didn’t get my #Drawdio musical pencil to work – nay. #THaSIS – yay!


I was psyched to see an email on my NYCIST listserv from Lindsay Velazco, science teacher at The Dalton School, looking to start a Teacher Hacker Space for Independent Schools (THaSIS). The plan is to host “a monthly meetup to pursue interests in electronics, robotics, and technology-related projects with other teachers. Folks from all grade levels, subject areas, and experience are welcome.”

We were greeted with food, beverages, and individual Drawdio musical pencil kits all generously provided by Dalton’s Parents Association. After assembling and soldering, my unit was a dud. Nevertheless, the experience was well worth it, and it was a good reminder to always have a Plan B (or just accept someone’s gift of a working musical pencil).
