Sorry, no video, but it sure was an exciting week!
During Crack the Code on Monday, once the students started working with robots, there was no turning back! So much fun watching them investigate Sphero, Ollie, and Dash robots.
Our Keva blocks inspired Max to build a high rise zoo!!
This week is Digital Citizenship Week, so the focus for some groups was cyberbullying and hate speech. Children talked about the what it means to be a good digital citizen. Some drew comics and other created Upstander Cards that could be given to a target, a bully or a bystander in a bullying situation.
Sorry, I didn’t get to post on Conference Day. I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend.
In our week 5 video, you will see an independently produced animation by Grace S., Crack the Code students working with light programmable robots called Ozobots, and some 7th grade students coding games and electronic prototypes using micro:bits.
Our video features some students in Bits & Bytes class that programmed a Dash robot to move in a rectangle, and clips of students working in WeDo Robotics class. The video of Sophia’s robot alligator was filmed by Keeva.
While we are waiting for our new Studios to be completed, classes will be held in room 121, on the first floor near the coffee machine, including 9-12 Tech rotations, Afterschool STEM classes, and 12-14 Computer Science.
