Lego Robotics

Today your students became robotic engineers as they learned how to program robots. Mr. Webster, our district science coach, joined us today and will be back tomorrow for this incredible learning opportunity. Mr. Webster wrote a grant to bring Lego Robotics into our district. We are so lucky to have him with us for 2 days!

He walked the students through the computer software and trained them in programming the robots. Tomorrow, the students will program the robots all by themselves. They are going to be able to make the robot move, make noises, play music, and even have a frown face! They never cease to amaze me with their abilities. We will use the robots for some science learning for a few weeks after spring break. It was a great day in room 102!
