Two Missouri Grade School Students Create a Holographic Learning Tool Using a Smart Table

    Ethan Lucido and Danny Disser experienced a taste of fame during their fifth grade year in the Orchard Farm School District. Now going into sixth grade, the students discuss how they repurposed an old SMART table to benefit kindergarteners. The boys turned the SMART table into a holographic, four player, touch-based math review game. The boys gave up recesses at school to build what they call the ‘Hologram Smart Table’. Ethan accessed scratch.mit.edu to code. The team programmed their own interactive math game, sharing the code with others in the online community. Their work became the center of a popular tweet before gaining the attention of the Midwest Education Technology Community. The boys were featured in a METC Podcast.
