Learning Spotlight

Mrs. Becker’s 7th and 8th grade Tech Ed students have been learning to design and program robots. They began by learning basic coding and programming, followed by having a Battle Bot, with the goal of being the last robot standing. Most recently, students were charged with programming their robots to “dance” to a song of their choice. Some used current popular music, while others created their own music using GarageBand. Students were authentically engaged in this STEM experience through the opportunity to use their creativity and make personal choices about the learning.
