  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Buttons
  • String
Step 1: Squish your toilet paper roll in half and cut small strips with your scissors

Step 2: Paint the pieces of your snowflake (inside and out) with the white paint and sprinkle with glitter (or roll it in the glitter). Allow to dry.

Step 3: You can either staple the strips into a snowflake shape, or you can glue them. If you glue them, make sure they have plenty of time to dry.

Step 4: Add bling (buttons, etc.) to the center and tie a ribbon to hang it from.

Maker Space: Biomedical Engineering Week

Maker space: Biomedical Engineering Week
  Have you ever had a plan to build the next big thing?  Students have the opportunity to build, create and explore in the Maker space at CMS.  Each week features a specialty topic with smaller activities that relate.  Biomedical Engineering encompasses a variety of different topics.  The broken bones activity will give students a chance to build a cast/ splint device.  






The nano-particles activity will challenge students to create a way to keep their particles from sticking to the inside of a blood vessel.   





The Alginate polymers activity will give students a better understanding of how pill coatings affect how medicines are absorbed by the body.
