Brilliant Brains Bulletin - 4th

January/February

Mrs. Redmon

Current Studies and Explorations

In Mrs. Redmons' class, we are continuing to work with our LEGO Mindstorm NXT robots!! Students have discovered how to build their robot from scratch, program their bots using software, as well as started designed their own challenge course.


During January/February, they have created their own course & are coding their robot to complete that course. They are using the LEGO Mindstorm NXT software to create their programs that are downloaded on each robot. They are continually using problem solving skills, sharing their struggles and successes through open peer dialogues.


After students complete their self-designed course, Mrs. Redmon will create their final course in our Robotics unit. I am proud of how they are "gearing up" for these challenges.
