Well, it’s probably no surprise that CS Ed Week was absolutlely amazing! Our video features students building, coding and exploring virtual reality.
Of course, students have been keyboarding, making collages, finishing animations for their class performance, writing reports, and doing a lot of storyboarding, as well. Check out our updated Hour of Code page to see more videos, including 9-12 students coding with Dash robots, and 7th graders programming BBC Micro:Bits!
Our second video features WeDo robotics students, some 4th graders learning to design a theater program, Tech Explorers building droids, 7th graders learning how to build and program buttons and sensors. and 4th graders exploring StoryboardThat.
Since this post’s video was aready 3 minutes, and I wanted to post before the Halloween Party, there are some things that you will not see, like 6th graders coding their own apps with Bitsbox, and 4th graders learning about the Rings of Responsibility for online and offline citizenship. What you will see is nothing short of amazing. Happy Halloween!!
This week was all about MAP assessments during the day, but some pretty exciting stuff happened in the lab after school. Our video starts out showing a castle being 3D printed on our Lulzbot Mini, designed in Tinkercad by a 4th grader in 3D Printing and Design. Next up, Technology Explorers worked with Ozobots, and programmed color codes to play a Halloween Game. Finally, you will see video independently produced by Robotics students.
This post’s video features elementary and junior high students working with robots. Physical computing supports all learners in exploring computational thinking practices and computer science concepts in creative ways. Physical computing is specifically intriguing because of its concrete connection between the “real” physical world and the virtual one.
