Hello! I am a new member here and I really love it! I have to say that this is one of the best websites that I have seen.I just wanted to say that I also have a website. It is a new website. It is a language learning website, but I need people who are willing to contribute to teach a language. You have to be fluent in the language you want to teach and in English.

How to Implement Facebook Social Login

Good afternoon,I have been trying to use "login with facebook" on my website for 15 days. I have been using the code published by Facebook, at the link https://developers.facebook.com/docs/facebook-log... web / v2.2. My problem with this code is that I want the customer after login with his facebook (through the window that pop out) to be redirected to a specific page on my website, but what happens is that after the customer does login with your facebook, the client is redirected to the same page that asks him to login.I have already followed the steps that are explained in the link that I mentioned earlier. Could someone help me? Thanks

Air pump and switch for two model cars to race.

We are making small model cars and hoping to race them at school.We hope to propel them with air from a bike pump. What we want to do is race two cars side by side, triggered by a switch that triggers both cars at the same time down a track. A ready-made kit is expensive and I am hopeful that some amazing person out there could design/make show me (a non-tech person!) how to achieve this. Many thanks.

Inherited old electrical equipment -Teacher

I inherited a classroom full of old electrical equipment and parts. The high school's pathway has changed throughout the years and no one uses the equipment anymore. Some of the parts include resistors, soldering equipment, wires and cables and bulbs, multimeters, voltometers, alligator clips, etc. I teach an introduction to coding class and I have no background in electrical anything. I would like to create a maker space for these objects, but was wondering if anyone has ideas for starter projects that I could lead the students through, to get them familiar with these types of materials, and working with basic circuits? If we could throw in some coding, that would be even better! I'd love to use some of this equipment.

Instructable editor - HTML tags filtering

Hi,I try to write an instructable to the math contest, but it is real hard to put inline formulas into the text. Even the simplest things are filtered out.I would like to make it with style and not use pictures for a simple power equation (you know the y=x^2 thing), but without the "^" symbol, just the number with superscript style. In HTML there is the tag to this or you can achieve with inline CSS as well (2), but while the editor show these correctly, these tags are filtered out at the saved instructable.What you think, what is the best solution to this problem? Do I have to use pictures? Or do I have to stay at the "^" symbol?It would be really nice when we have math contest, that this board could understand math styling as well (am I asking much with MATHML language?).

The Teacher Note editor has options for noting grade levels and subjects, as well as attaching resources such as Docs or PDFs of lesson plans, graphic organizers, or other classroom materials created to support students with the project. Sharing a Teacher Note is an excellent way to connect with, learn from, and support other educators within the global Instructables Community.Do you have an Instructable project you've used with your students? Did you create resources such as lesson plans or student handouts to go with a project you found on the site? Did you adapt parts of an instructable or use different materials to create a project for your students? If you’ve done any of these things, then you can create a Teacher Note and share how you incorporated that project into your classroom so other educators can do the same.

Embedded pictures not working on mobile

I posted an Instructable (https://www.instructables.com/id/Escape-Room-Engineering-Review-Game/) and before I published I checked it over by previewing it. Everything worked, all my pictures showed up, and I thought I was good. After I published I checked my Instructable on my phone and two embedded pictures of a the cryptex in Steps 4 and 5 did not show up. So I got back on my computer, opened it up and the pictures were showing.I unpublished the Instructable, decided to delete those two pictures, reupload them, and try to embed them again. I thought that fixed it because last time I couldn't embed the pictures in anything but the SQUARE3 format and this time it let me embed them as LARGE. Checked the Instructable again on line, everything looked good, and better than before because the pictures showed up the size I wanted. Published again and the two cryptex pictures reverted back to SQUARE3 format and won't show up when I look at it on my phone again. When I go back into the edit page those pictures show up fine and are in the LARGE format. I've never had this happen but I'm somewhat new to embedding images into an Instructable with HTML.Two Questions:1. Does anyone know why this is and happening or someway I can fix this issue?2. The first time I published I entered this Instructable in a contest. When I unpublished it did that remove my contest entry and if so can I reenter the contest somehow?

Laser Cutting in the Classroom

After creating a makerspace at my elementary school, I was always on the lookout for fresh projects and new tools and a laser cutter was that one big item at the top of my wishlist that I just never got... but, I know some teachers and librarians who are brand new to the world of laser cutting and would love pointers from other teachers who have already worked through some of the challenges of starting something new. :) So, if you have a laser cutter in your classroom or school makerspace, please share any tips or suggestions you might have for any teachers who are just starting out with one at their school. Also, feel free to share any cool projects you and your students have done or programs you use.

Classroom Organization

Back to school is quickly approaching, which means teachers are heading back to set up their classrooms, unpack and reorganize books and supplies, and start planning for the new group of students. If you're like me, then you are also redesigning your whole classroom furniture layout. ;D Every teacher I know seems to have a system, so I thought it would be fun to share our favorite tips and tricks for keeping it all organized.Do you use baskets and bins or folders and binders? Paper calendar or all digital? How do your students turn in their work? Mailboxes, hand-made sorters, or letter trays for each class period?How do you show off student work? Do you use student portfolios, bulletin boards, a hanging space, or the classroom windows?What about: Lesson Plans The Class Library or Guided Reading Area Math Centers STEM Resources Classroom Jobs Substitute Teacher Plans Table CaddiesThis is also a great opportunity to get inspired and plan your project ideas for the Classroom Organization Challenge that starts August 5th. :D

Looking for a Fun Creative Project for Adults with Little to No Experience

I run a non profit teaching kids computer science concepts. As a fund raiser idea I was considering hosting an adult class at our local makerspace. I am looking for a kind of nerdy, somewhat inexpensive projects that adults will enjoy making as well as displaying in their home or office. With kids we do coding, make games, light LEDs with arduinos, make Raspeberry Pi cameras, and play around with paper circuits and homemade hex bugs. Does anyone have any adult ideas that may be fun? (Also, we are considering having a local brewery bring beer) I am open for more kids projects too, if you have any.

Jurassic Spark kids game: how to distribute fun more evenly?

I recently made up an outdoor kids adventure game that is really fun for most, but could use help with making the game more fun for all the kids. I conducted an anonymous survey afterwards and a few kids were sad that they didn't get to find the batteries (explained below). My question relates to this. I'm asking here because I figure teachers have tons of experience with kids!The game is called Jurassic Spark. I've written up the details with lots of pictures in this Instructable for the game, but I'll summarize here:Target kid age: 4 to 7 years old (although I plan to continue adapting as kids get older) Scenario: The Jurassic Spark electrified fence has lost power and many dangerous dinosaurs are on the loose. Can our brave explorers (kids) find the high power batteries to energize the fence before it's too late? Watch out for the T-Rex!Player roles: explorers (kids), small dinosaurs (adults), and the terrifying T-Rex (adult)!To win: the explorers need to find and return the 6 high power Batteries back to the Power Station to energize the electric fence before the dinosaurs tag all the explorers. Because the kids are young, the dinosaurs (adults) aren't playing to win, just to make it an exciting challenge. The game lasts around 15 to 20 minutes.Getting tagged: When a dinosaur tags an explorer, the explorer has to freeze and put their arms out like in freeze tag. Frozen explorers are encouraged to yell for assistance "Help! Help! A dino chomped me!" and can be unfrozen by being touched by another free explorer.Tail stealing: The explorers are not completely defenseless, however. The small dinosaurs have tails that can be stolen and they hate that! "Roar! Who stole my tail!?" Tail lacking dinosaurs must return to the dinosaur pen before they can regrow their tail and return to hunting. I feel that this is a very important part of the game as it brings balance and a whole lot of fun. It also encourages lots of exciting team building as kids will often gang up on a dino to take it down or distract it. Once the electric fence is powered up, dinos that have their tails stolen are trapped in the pen until the game ends (usually only a minute or two).T-REX: To up the level of excitement, we add a T-Rex wild card into the mix! The T-Rex cannot be stopped and loves chomping on explorers! There's nothing quite like seeing a giant roaring T-Rex head chase or stalk their cute tiny prey :)We played the game with 20 kids, 6 small dinosaurs, and 1 T-Rex.Question: How can I make the game more fun for the kids that feel left out because they didn't find a battery? We made a rule that a kid can only return one battery per game, but there are 6 batteries and 20 kids. The older kids tended to find the batteries each game. My gut is telling me that I wouldn't be able to handle a game with 20 batteries.The part that makes this extra challenging is that the kids are young and I can't make too many complicated rules. We'll add complexity as they grow older with tranquilizer darts and stuff like that :)If you are interested in reading all the survey feedback, it is near the bottom of the Instructable.Thanks!Adam

Favorite classroom science experiments?

I've been wanting to document some simple and effective science experiments, so I'd love to hear favorites from the community! The most popular experiments at my elementary school were definitely lemon and potato batteries. I have no idea why, but tiny-me really enjoyed seeing that light bulb start glowing Or the time we dyed carnations using food coloring in the water in middle school! It was really neat to see the flower change a little more every day during the week.What's your favorite? :D

Project-Based Learning (PBL) Resources

I'm always inspired by the awesome, in-depth projects teachers are doing with students in different grade levels. From animal research projects in second grade to designing 3D models of Jamestown in Tinkercad with fifth graders or CubeSat projects in High School. There's so much we can learn about PBL from each other! :)What are your "Go To" projects that you do with your students? Any tips for managing class projects and grading (rubrics or scales, etc.)? What about finding materials/resources for projects? My best resource for cardboard was the school cafeteria. :D

Best Arduino lessons for different age groups?

I'm always looking to freshen up my curriculum when it comes to introductory Arduino lessons. Some older guides have mistakes that aren't ever corrected, and new features come out that I just don't notice (my students tease me for forgetting about the bulk comment/uncomment menu item, for example). Besides the Instructables Arduino Class and Tinkercad Circuits lessons, what are your best suggestions for introductory Arduino lessons at the grade level you teach?
