We Are A Maker Group--We Make Things.

    Maybe we could do something like this?

So cool, it needed its own space.

Welcome to the innovative and awesome Science Builders Group, we are a work of Mad Genius in Progress.  

We now have a name for our Makerspace:
SCAM Lab "We Make Ideas..."
. also stands for Science Contraptions and Amazing Machines.  This describes our activities and captures the spirit of the Science Builders Group pretty accurately. 

We are the first affiliates!

NEA STEM Video (Part 1)   Why Students Love STEM: Appalachian Ohio Public High Schools - Part I
Many of you participated in this last year.  You were great--I was frightened.  Caleb Cooks did a great job and edited it to our strengths--He even made me look ok!

This is not about us but our WEIRD SCIENCE CARNIVAL was the filler between the other interviews--Hmmm we are pretty awesome!

Current Projects

May, 2013

First SCAM Lab project off the ground: The blinking Bow Tie.  3D designed and printed, adapted Joule thief circuit powering 2 blue LEDs powered by a 1.5 AAA battery.  Now to package it with verbose overblown hype.  The SCAM Lab way.  Pictures coming soon. 


Remember, This is a NO INJURY ZONE

When dealing with electricity or other potentially dangerous forces or objects--Use your head. 

As with any science experiments, Stay Alert and Proceed with Caution.  Most accidents are a combination of small, innocent looking things that by themselves look harmless, but together become big and dangerous. 

The best accident is the one that NEVER happened. 

Check it out with an expert or the adult in charge to be very sure you will be safe and injury free.
