STEM Robotics Club

The second grade STEM Robotics After School Club used the bee-bot to retell in sequential order the cumulative tale "One is a Feast for Me: A Thanksgiving Tale". They used directional cards to create an algorithm that would guide their robot out of the hidey-hole in the clock, across the Thanksgiving table to gather leftover food and avoid the sneaky greeny-eyed cat.

In addition to coding, the students learned about types of ants, body parts, how ants communicate, ant homes, and the different jobs the ants do to help within the colony.

5th-grade students in Mrs. Hurst's High Ability Language Arts class are participating in a project-based learning experience to launch an idea for a Senior Wellness Park in Huntingburg. The students have researched Huntingburg's Stellar Community Project, popular injuries and illnesses for people 65+, mental health issues (loneliness and depression) affecting people 65+, and park equipment for balance, flexibility, hand/eye coordination, and strength. The students invited their grandparents and members of the community to hear their ideas and learn more about their needs and interests. The students received strong support and valuable feedback from their guests. Upon completion, the students will present their final project to community leaders. The photos were taken during the presentations to grandparents and members of the community in the 65+ age group.
