Students in MMS Mass Media, STEAM Club, and Mattoon Innovation Team (MIT) have been working with our Instructional Technology Coach, Claire Vogel and Media Specialist, Ingrid Minger on increasing Computer Science and Computational Thinking in a variety of ways over the past few months. Based on student interest, teams have been collaborating to code a light display at the MMS Winter Wonderland event, fly drones to capture and produce media, and explore robotics with Sphero RVRs, MicroBits, and VEX robots. Through a partnership with EIU, Mattoon Middle School was selected to be a Pathways to the Future Pilot Program to receive a grant to purchase new technology to support our students' learning. We are very excited to see what the future holds with these technology learning opportunities! #CoachingBrightSpots

Some of the MMS Mass Media students were recently able to visit Downtown Design Studio in Tuscola to learn about all things embroidery! The visit will help them prepare to begin utilizing the embroidery machine in the Media Center. Kelley at Downtown Design took an afternoon to teach Zion, Cora, Mrs. Minger & Mrs. Vogel how to design files with software programming for students to be able to create projects utilizing textiles in the Maker Space. These community partnerships allow us to expand learning opportunities in our area.
