Build Events

  • Students will submit videos that are taken in a given time frame (e.g. 8 minutes).
  • Can start the “drop in” event even days earlier (March 17, 18, or 19) so that parents can help video event.  
  • Recommend setting up a test for the length of time students are allowed to demonstrate their build activity (for example, test duration 8 minutes, video will show start time on the screen, they run the activity, then show time on screen.  
  • Students can email video to you, upload to dropbox or google form (some school devices have trouble with google forms).
