1st Grade wrapped up their coding unit by animating their own short stories in Scratch Jr. They started their robotics unit, learning how to write “just right” lines and codes for Ozobots. They are currently working on creating zoo maps for their Ozobot to explore.
2nd Grade wrapped up their coding unit by creating a “Crossy Game” in Scratch Jr. Their game themes were so creative! They started their robotics unit, learning to draw lines and codes for Ozobots. Along with the 1st graders, they are creating zoo maps for their Ozobot to explore.
3rd Grade built and coded various robots using our Lego WeDo kits. They had fun figuring out how to code their Milo bots to race the fastest! They are currently working through their maze unit. So far, they’ve practice teamwork while building Lego marble mazes and learned about the properties of magnets while creating a Magnetic Maze. More maze fun to come!
4th Grade learned about closed and open circuits while building “paper circuits” out of copper tape, a coin cell battery, and an LED light. They engineered towers to support a stack of books for Read Across America Week, and participated in STEM Stations.
5th Grade learned about conductive and nonconductive materials while also learning how to use a Makey Makey to create a controller for their computer. They completed a fun St. Patrick’s Day STEM activity where they engineered a penny bridge and participated in STEM Stations.
Maker Club has continued to learn about electronic components with Arduinos, 3D printed a word in their own handwriting, and created a bristle bot!
