A list of supplies will be posted in the classroom. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
- Learners must be comfortable using scissors. Parental guidance might be advised in some cases. 
- I suggest the use of a hot glue gun for two of the projects. Learners can choose to use tapes instead if not comfortable using a hot glue gun. But a hot glue gun is highly recommended. 
- We will be using Kahoot for quizzes and games, instruction will be communicated beforehand in the classroom.
