In January, I posted about my acquisition of the 3Doodler from a Kickstarter project.  My students used it with varying degrees of success in our Makerspace (B.O.S.S. HQ) this year.  Some were frustrated immediately, and some went to that center any time they had the chance.  I’m trying to encourage them to expand their thinking about what they can accomplish with it.  The other day, I ran across a post on Makezine.com that featured a remote control plane that someone built using a 3Doodler Pen!  What I particularly like about the story is that it shows the process of building it and testing it – and gives reasons for its somewhat shaky flight.  This is a great little video to show students T.M.I. (Think, Make, Improve – recommended by Gary Stager and Sylvia Martinez in Invent to Learn).
