The purchase of Ozobots, little robots, incorporate technology into real world applications and enhances the developing STEM program. These tiny robots have sensors that respond according to specific colors that are drawn on paper on an iPad. Students can program the robots to move in different ways according to the color combination.
Using Brackitz, a building block kit, students explore using open-ended projects. They are encouraged to build and experiment with block play, which encourages problem solving and collaboration.
Listening to and reading stories engages us in new topics as we are drawn into high interest literature. This project will increase student interest and awareness of STEM topics through the use of storybooks and high interest nonfiction.
The age of Personal Robotics is rapidly approaching, which includes new technology such as the Nest Thermostats, Roomba Vacuum or Google’s Self-Driving Car. Today’s students should develop a conceptual understanding of how to use and program the myriad of robots that will soon be intimately involved in their lives. The EZ-Robot is an engaging educational […]
Imagine bringing the Hayden Planetarium into a classroom…. Well, this presentation does just that! This technology-based presentation integrates scientific content with science and math practices, cross-cutting concepts and engineering principles so students can see the interrelated nature of the 4 STEM subjects while investigating the solar system.
