Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, celebrating the achievements and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States. The month of May was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.


Maker Spaces in the Media Center

Maker Space activities are beginning to show up in the Media Center during lunch periods.  So far we have had a few Lego Challenge activities.  Coming soon will be Cardboard Construction Challenges, Zentangle, Weaving, and Paper Bag Mystery Challenges.

The Tilden Media Center Makerspace is a constructionist place for students to give life, shape, function, and purpose to their ideas; they utilize knowledge, skills, and tools from a wide range of content areas and experiences.

We will be utilizing the TMI - Think, Make, Improve model as we work and create in our makerspace.

Think - Students begin by thinking through the problem, project or challenge that they have been presented.

Make - Students put their thinking into making; depending on what the project is, this is the heart of their work and thje practical and exploratory application of their ideas generated during the first stage.

Improve - Students will constantly be analyzing their product or project as they are making and other students  might also come up with ways to improve on their original designs.
