Ashley's first Sketchup model - just the beginning...
In 2 hours, the girls, each working on a MacBook, were able to design a building, add color and texture to the facade, mount a sign, create scenes and export animations to edit using video editing software.

Brick by Brick visits The Barnacle in Coconut Grove

This was a great day for both BxB groups to meet - the Mater Academy kids and Girl Power group had a great time getting to know one another.

We learned about the boathouse built by Mr. Munroe in Coconut Grove. In addition to designing and building boats, he also built his house, The Barnacle, which had many ingenious ways to take advantage of breezes to cool the house in 1891. We saw many tools, handmade toys and early cameras he used to document the early days of Coconut Grove.

The view from the boathouse.
Thanks to the guides at the Barnacle for an excellent look at life more than a century ago!

Street Poets in Mater Academy

The letters are all different, we are missing an H or an extra S.
Naming. A Building, a fence, a window.
Walking and writing words.
