Students in grades 3-5 have been participating in an after school Lego Robotics club with Mr. Sitts for the past 6 weeks. During this time they used their coding, teamwork, and problem solving skills to build various different robots. Once the teams built their robot they were then given a challenge or problem to work through with it. The students then worked together to modify their robot to solve the challenge and earn points for their team.
The tasks got really interesting when two robots got linked together. This then required teams to work together with another team to code the joined robots simultaneously through a maze or racetrack. This was a great way for the students to take what they were learning about coding with Mr. Moore throughout the year and now be able to apply that knowledge to solve real world problems.
