National Robotics Week

Cherry Lane Elementary School students in Mrs. Theresa Collalto's first grade class were given a STEM-based challenge each day to celebrate National Robotics Week. The mission for “Robo Week” is to inspire students to explore STEM robotics related fields.

Cherry Lane students participated in activities such as Binary Codes BFF bracelets, Build a Better Bug model insect robots and Code a Dance Party with Dash robots. They learned about coding sequencing and loops, solving a mystery code to reveal a hidden message, were introduced to the function of binary codes, and created prototypes of a bug and morphed it into a robot.

Each day students used the four C's of technology: critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication. They worked together to build, create and explore the world of robotics and coding, and they showed such enthusiasm with each challenge they faced.
