Robotics and the “M” in STEM

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Our students have had a busy week with robotics. Aside from learning programming commands, they are getting a good work out with the “M” in STEM by recording data, learning about percentages, calculating averages, measuring metric distances, and graphing data. Students are also learning about collaboration skills as well as steps in problem solving through obstacles such as software issues and programming errors.

Next week students will begin exploring light sensors and they will be presented with a challenge project that will culminate with a competition on May 31st. More on that will be posted soon!
