Students are provided laptop computers, programming software, LEGO® Construction Kits, motors, sensors as well as direct instruction by highly qualified and NYS Certified Teachers. Working in teams of two, young students design their own solutions by building LEGO® models along with programming them to perform certain tasks. In this real world context, students learn engineering principles and professional practices with learning correct vocabulary, terminology, and functionality of all physical elements and electronic components; students program If-Then, Wait-For, Repeat Statements, etc. with individually building & programming physical models for completing PBL tasks along with, (required) commenting on all coding and sharing out design thinking, debugging, and strategic innovation. Students self-initiate collaboration & teaming/cross-teaming with further developing 21st century skills throughout this comprehensive Robotics Unit of study.

While students will be completing individualized Programming Tasks, they will also be working in teams of two and, may wish to enroll with a friend or relative, to specifically partner with. If this is the case, please note the requested partnership on the (required) Learning Styles Inventory Form posted below – thank you!
