Imagine a component, Draw it with Illustrator, Save it to a Flash Drive, Cut it with a Laser Cutter, Assemble the component, Use it!

Posted on Nov 1, 2015 by Andy Marks Last Activity on Nov 1, 2015

I am a M.E.S.A. adviser in Utah's Granite School District: MESA stands for Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement. This year's project is a prosthetic hand with "integrated computer science elements". The hand is to be controlled with an Arduino. In the past, other MESA advisers and their students have struggled with the "carpentry" aspects of designing and building things. I thought this year's project would be no different as I played with designing and building a hand that could be computer controlled.  I modeled the hand after my own, limiting it to an index finger and opposing thumb. The first hand I made took hours to build from three 1/2" layers of plywood, hand machined to accept a small stepper motor and to have enough room for a 16T, 32P, 5mm bore pinion gear driving a "gear finger" drawn in InkScape. The finger looks like my index finger, but at its base, where a knuckle resides, is a 48T, 32P gear. My first "gear finger" was cut b... Read More

Lord of the Rings Edit

Posted on Oct 19, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Oct 20, 2015

I received this project a few years ago.  Its the script, soundtrack and RAW video clips from the first Lord of the Rings movie. The project included script comprehension, clip edits and cutaway designations, sound/audio design and timing of reaction shots according to the actual movie.  The best part of this is the students have to determine the correct clips, sound files from the clips and clip designations and they can add reactions and cutaways the actual movie does not have.  This is a great production edit project! PS: The video starts at Aragorn saying "If by my life or death....The audio quality will need edited!!!! Let the fun begin! PLEASE HAVE YOUR STUDENTS CROP THE TIME CODE OFF THE PROJECT! I have created a drop box to download the zip file of items.  If you do not have a drop box log in, go to and create an account, Its Free.

Captivate Draft Overview

Posted on Sep 9, 2015 by Mark DuBois Last Activity on Sep 22, 2015

Adobe Captivate Draft is an iPad based tool which allows you to quickly create eLearning content and share it with others. You can collaborate with peers in the creation of the content (they only need a browser to review and comment on the module). You can then pull the results into Adobe Captivate 9 and build your eLearning content quickly. This is an overview of the tool I recently put together. This weblog post also includes a working example of the finished example along with Captivate Draft and Captivate 9 files you can download and experiment with.

Conversing With Myself Clone Project

Posted on Sep 6, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Oct 7, 2015

This is a great project for Critical Thinking and Problem Solving.  Students will have to script their concept and determine specific angles, movements, cutaways and timing to make sure that their cloned individuals are all in place and look realistic.  Great script writing, filming and editing project in Premiere or After Effects or both.  This can be done as a Photoshop or Photography Collage Concept as well.  This sample production has a noticeable jump cut which I use as a sample of what moving the camera will result in.

Ussing Illustrator to teach Rotational Symmetry

Posted on Sep 1, 2015 by Ramapriya Rajagopalan Last Activity on Sep 2, 2015

I used Illustrator 'Transform' feature to teach Rotational symmetry. Students loved it and were able to try various custom shapes and the order of symmetry. Here are the steps 1. Create any simple shape or join multiple shapes using pathfinder and create a custom shape 2. Use Distort & Transform menu -> Transform option       Input 1 in the copy box,check the pre view box.       Go to the angle box and change the angle manually using arrow keys or typing the angle for 45,90,180,270,360 deg. Notice how many times during the rotation the the copy of the change aligns and looks like the original one. and record this. This gives the order of symmetry and tells if the shape has rotational symmetry or not.

Final Short Film

Posted on Aug 15, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Sep 19, 2015

This is a culmination of every aspect students learned over the entire course of the year.  It includes lighting, producing/directing, editing, filming, filter effects, shot composition, location scouting and photography for story boards, special effects, animated titles, scriptwriting, story-boards, video research and final rendering.  This project still bugs me because they didn't complete what I think could be a really good short film.  However what they completed in my mind is really good for high school students.  Especially finding a burned down house to match the online video they found to assist what their actor did.

Cartoon Illustration/Animation

Posted on Aug 13, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Nov 3, 2015

I had my students write short stories and then record the voices for each character.  Then the students drew, illustrated and exported their characters for animation in After Effects and Adobe Premiere.  Voice overs were recorded and edited using Audition and then inserted into the animation process.  Songs and sound effects were taken off royalty free web sites. Here is a finished animation of characters, backgrounds and facial features and mouth movements completed by one of my sophomores. The cartoon character animation adapted and Papagayo voice animation software to complete this project.

The new AC Method to factor trinomials

Posted on Jul 13, 2015 by Nghi Nguyen Last Activity on Aug 29, 2015

The existing factoring AC Method has been so far the popular approach to factor trinomials. However, this method can be considerably improved with we apply the Rule of Signs for real roots of a quadratic equation in its solving process. The new AC Method proceeds factoring trinomials faster than the existing popular factoring AC Method. Its main advantage is to avoid the lengthy factoring by grouping.
