Snow Removal STEM Fun!

Despite the lack of snow in Maryland this year, SLS Cyber STEM students were challenged to design and build a snowplow out of index cards, attach it to an Ozobot robot, and program the robot to navigate a simulated town while removing snow. Students watched a MythBusters Discovery Education video that demonstrated various plow designs, then worked in teams to design and build their own plow. Once their plow was built, each team planned out a path using Ozobot programming color codes for direction, speed, timers, exits and more. Teams are now using the engineering refinement process to try out a design, observe how well it works, then modify and improve their design and code to increase the amount of snow each plow can remove!
