Hack of the Week: Orientation Scavenger Hunt

This week’s hack is from Florida Tech’s Pathways team: they re-designed their freshman orientation activities with a scavenger hunt for new students. The hunt took students around campus to show them where to find makerspaces and other opportunities for innovation. Check out the video below. Want to know more? Email team co-leader Beshoy Morkos.

Hack of the Week: Makerspace Assessment Rubric

Our very first Hack of the Week comes courtesy of Lisa Yokana (@lyokana) and Edutopia: a rubric¬†for assessing student work on “making” activities. It’s originally designed for K-12, but wouldn’t need much tweaking for use in a university setting.
