Welcome 2017

Welcome to the New Year!

One of the last activities we did for 2016 was to make our Art project robots ‘Mobile’. In the video above, you can see one of our builders taking their robot on a ride. All the robots were able to take a journey in our Village Activities Center during their Art blocks. The mobile platform was built with our LittleBits and worked much the same as the signs the students created for our Open House in September. They pushed the slider to make the platform go slower or faster.

As we enter the new year, we are finishing up our Legos Community Projects and our Robot stories using the Story Visualizer software. For the Legos project, they are building the school, our town area, the village area and a neighborhood. In the robot stories, the students are taking their robots through great adventures. 

Also in the classroom, we have been building our characters and rehearsing our stories. We will be introducing our characters and working with the Story Visualizer next week.
