Did you know that at this year's Winter Olympics, Minnesota has the second highest representation of Olympic athletes, behind California? We have 19 athletes on Team USA, and 1 is a hometown boy, Paul Martin (Men's Hockey), from Elk River! He is actually a neighborhood kid. How cool is that!
For the display, I generated QR codes using QRStuff, a QR code generator. I attached a QR code to a tag of each individual sport that links to the history of that sport, and codes for the Olympics schedule and opening ceremony. I also created a QR code that links to a high school picture of Paul. The display highlights Minnesota athletes and the sports they will be competing in. A selection of Olympic and sport related books complete the display.
So, here is an example of how I am using the RedLaser app we learned about in Thing 3.
