The Kindergartners in West G start working on STEM topics early in their education. One of their recent projects was to work on coding to make robots move.
Said Sandy Razzante, the
teacher who helped the students with this project, “The students were creating
a maze out of Keva Planks which they then tried to navigate the robot Dash
through using an app on the ipad. This fits into the STEM curriculum using the
design process (E for engineering) and using technology (T for technology).”
Incorporating STEM lessons as
early as Kindergarten helps to begin to prepare them for more complex
information as they progress further into elementary school.
