Project Snail Mail – Issue #18

Snail Mail from Code VA’s Eureka Workshop is On It’s Way!
We just dropped this month’s Snail Mail activities in the mailbox, so students signed up will be receiving it soon! We’re excited to be able to provide students with a compiled list of offline resources from Code VA’s Eureka Workshop. In this copy of Snail Mail we decided to learn about traveling from two different perspectives: electricity and electronics. How does electricity travel? And how do we use electronics to get from place to place? It turns out that both of those questions needed investigating before we were able to appreciate how much technology we use every day. So many types of technology rely on electricity! Including our navigation technology, from smartphones to satellites.
We rely on these machines in order to get mail, but also to participate in fun activities like geocaching. Has your family ever geocached? The Eureka team would love to hear what kind of technology you use to find buried treasure and discover new locations. If you want to share your student’s work, be sure to tag us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter! You can find us on the internet by clicking the social media links at the bottom of this page, and be sure to follow us if you haven’t already to get updates about all of our programs for students, educators, and families!
Didn’t sign up this month? Dont worry! You can access all the activities we sent this month digitally and sign up your student to receive snail mail next month. If you have any questions about this month’s Snail Mail activities feel free to reach out to us at [email protected]. Thanks for being our favorite pen pals!
