Our trip to the Bonneville Dam and fish hatchery was fantastic. The weather was great, tour guides at the dam were great, parent chaperones were great, and our student behavior was great. Even the fish seemed to be doing quite well today. Our students culminated their learning from a STEM unit earlier in the year on salmon and energy as well as from a pilot project about lamprey eels. It was a delight to see and hear students share their expertise with their tour guides, parents, and peers.
Yesterday we finished out robotics unit in style with the Can Do Challenge. In this competition, students programmed robots with light sensors to stay within a ring and knock pop cans out of the ring in three minutes or less. This year’s group of students did a fantastic job in design, programming, and collaboration, and it led to a great competition. Congratulations to every team for a great effort this year.
