The Grade 4 students of St. Stephen's are diving into the world of Wendell the World's Worst Wizard! As they read the engaging and humorous book, they are taking inspirations from Wendell and building their very own robots in our school's FabLab which is our STEM/maker space. They also send tweets to Wendell and ask questions every once in a while to get some ideas.
That's pretty cool in itself. Where it gets extra special is what happens next month. John Spencer, half of the husband and wife writing team of John and Christy Spencer (hence the initials J.C.), will arrive the day before Miami Device begins to read the last chapter to the students, followed by a Q & A session, and book signings. Then, the students will take Mr. Spencer on a tour of the FabLab where their robots will be on display.
I'll be sure we post plenty of photos via St. Stephen's social media.
You can watch a video preview of Wendell the World's Worst Wizard below. I hope you enjoy it as much as our students have.
