Students in OESJ Elementary Learn Robotics

At the beginning of May, students in grades 3-5 were introduced to Robotics using Cubelets. Through discovery learning, the students built cubelet robots. Cubelets are magnetic blocks that can be snapped together to make an endless variety of robots. The students built robots that drove around on a tabletop, responded to light, sound, and temperature. Every unique arrangement was a new robot. Check out their robots and watch their excitement.

Students in grades K-2 were introduced to programming using Blue-Bot Robots. The children used the directional and sequence buttons on the back of the Blue-Bots to program them to move across the mat and solve a problem. Students even programmed them to dance. The Robots excited the students to problem solve.
