Dylan Ryder is the Intermediate Division Educational Technologist (grades 3-5) here at The School at Columbia University, and Kevin Fittinghoff is the Intermediate Division Principal. They partnered to facilitate the Maker Club which met 2 hours every two weeks for the past few months. In previous sessions, they’ve made paper crafts and paper circuits. Today’s mission was to build paper flying machines: planes, fish, boomerangs, propellers, tumbling fish, helicopters, air surfers, parachutes, and a tumbling winged bat.
Dylan created a GoogleDoc of resources he gathered for the kids. This page contains links to instructions, photos, and video tutorials for making a bunch of different stuff. He explained that they were responsible for choosing activities, following instructions, working together, and asking questions.
If you’d like him to share the GoogleDoc with you, he can be reached on Twitter at @dylanmryder.
