Elementary Students at Franklin have been learning about Computer Science during Library STEM time and Technology Time.

As an end-of-the-year project, students used what they learned about input and output devices in order to design and build a prototype for a robotic device. Students were creative problem solvers as they designed push button controls, touch screens, microphones and speakers, as well as moving parts of their device.
