Day 101: Photo Booths

Thursday, 19 January 2017

Today is the day we finished building our photo booths and shared them with the school community. I worked with some students to build the Raspberry Pi with a touch screen and camera attached and my colleagues worked with the rest of the class to build actual booths, backdrops, and props.

My first Raspberry Pi project. With a well-documented set of directions, students completely unfamiliar with the Linux command line can do this work.

This group of Makers was amazing. They were willing to be silly with me in the photo booth.

A major part of this project was to engage our school community in a project we created. Last year, the students chose to build a game called snookball. Feedback from those kids this year was that our photo booths were a better choice.
