Koby and the Skoog
The Skoog is an exciting new musical instrument with accessibility at its heart. An instrument designed explicitly for special education to empower those unable to play traditional instruments. The Skoog is a soft, squeezable object that simply plugs straight into your computer or laptop’s USB port. Simply touching, pressing, squashing, twisting or tapping the Skoog allows you to play a wide range of instruments, intuitively. Learn more about it here
You can see Koby Major, age 5, having a brilliant time playing with the Skoog. Inventor and entrepreneur, Benjaman Schogler, came along to demonstrate how it could be used. He worked with all three classes and everyone had a go. Even the very lightest touch can generate a sound. Some pupils hit the Skoog, some squeezed, some rolled it, Jonathon leaned on it with his shoulder and played the flute. Using a WOWee one gel speaker, sound vibrations gave another dimension to the musical experience.
Joy, a student in musicology from Greece and on work placement with Benjaman, is going to work with groups of pupils over the next few weeks. Mark my words, there’s going to be a lot of fun and a lot of music happening down at the Hub!
We have been having a great time at camp and we have been doing lots fun activities
Today we have been on a forest walk, a zip-wire and have done problem solving in our groups. On the zip-wire everyone had a great time and were howling like wolves, but it was pretty scary!!
In the evening we did a scavenger hunt and did a water balloon challenge. The camp leaders dropped our water balloons from the top of the building and only 2 survived!!
We have made lots of new friends in our dorms and we wanted to make friendship bracelets for them.
We are looking forward to a great day tomorrow!
We needed 1800 bottles to build our greenhouse!
Bob Clelland, retired janitor of Tranent Primary, kindly offered to help the eco committee to build a plastic bottle greenhouse. He masterminded the design and worked with different groups of children to complete it. All the children brought in 2 litre plastic bottles, nearly 1800 of them, and under Bob’s guidance cut them to the required size. The children then put the bottles onto canes and fixed them to the framework. The whole project only took 4 weeks thanks to Bob.
