Homemade Projector

spangler projectorUse magnification to turn a smartphone and cardboard box into a DIY projector.

Smartphones are used more frequently than for watching videos than ever before, but sometimes you just want a bigger viewing area. For those strapped for cash or in the mood to do something creative, you can construct your own Homemade Projector. All the project takes is a cardboard box, a smart phone, and a few basic tools. The result is a real, working projector that you’ve made with your own hands!

Grade 9&10 Science – Multiple Strands.

We had applied and received a TLLP grant (Teacher Learning and Leadership Program ) to get 30 iPads (and more) for a 1-1 iPad classroom in Math and Science. Below you will see our slideshow from the recent STAO conference that covers the TLLP grant. The slideshow covers what we got in tech, some of our favourite apps, what our kids did, and some of the issues that we had. As you look at the slideshow, note that there are embedded videos and many of the images are hotlinked. If you cannot see the slideshow, you can link to it directly here
