A Great Example – Can You Build It?
Explore this example created by Patrica Merlino, a middle school technology teachers who is also a ThingLink Expert Educator. Patricia was the first person to take the newest Creative Challenge featuring technology and engineering and we are very glad she did! Patricia used the Photo Mapo app to easily create this stunning base image before she added it to ThingLink for tagging.
