Week 1 News

We kicked off our first week with a discussion about the Engineering Design Process and participated in an Engineering Design Challenge: Straw Tower. We also explored our VEX IQ kits by categorizing the pieces and playing Bingo to practice recognizing important pieces by their name (beams, pins, gears, etc.). Then we enjoyed our first lesson with Robotics Expert Mrs. Williams - she taught us about Engineering Notebooks and some coding basics using Robot C. Finally, we started building Flex! This robot will help us earn points in the game "Next Level." We completed the chassis and did some relays for driving practice. We'll finish building the lifts next week!
