All assignments, projects, and announcements will be posted in Blend at https://aisdblend.instructure.com/. Grades are still posted to TEAMs.

As lab assistants, advanced students are given the opportunity to select their own independent projects and the freedom to explore areas of their own choosing. Interested? You need to complete an application and turn in to Mr. Howard.

Previous lab assistant projects have included: building a 3D printer, creating Android apps, stop motion animation films, advanced video projects, work-working projects, building a compressed air rocket launcher, advanced robotics projects, and writing various video games (RPG, scrolling shooters, and Kinect). Many of these projects are now part of our standard classes.
