Virtual Lego Challenge!
We had many students who stepped up and became champions of the Virtual Lego Challenge at Livingston School. Mr. Rivera, the Media Specialist at Livingston School, created a STEAM project that involved a simplified version of the Engineering Design Process. Students had to Design, Build and Explain the thought process of various challenges given to them via Peardeck. Students then selected or let a spinner randomly select the challenge they would build with digital blocks via Google Slides. Finally, students had to decide how to present their work utilizing Flipgrid. Overall, this was a great learning experience showcasing student voice, ownership of work, critical thinking skills, and creativity.
Here is an amazing 3rd Grader from Mrs. Aldaz's Bilingual Class, presenting her challenge. She decided to make two videos to ensure she covered all aspects of what she wanted to present, below you will see her build video.
Congratulations to all the Virtual Lego Champions that did their best.
