What do Fourth Graders and engineers have in common? They each use their knowledge of STEM to solve real-world problems. Yesterday, our students used Dash robots, purchased through a generous grant from AFCEA Central Maryland (CMD), to programmatically move and draw geometric shapes.
For the past few weeks, students have been using the website to learn about coding, movement, angles, and shapes in Mrs. Whiteford’s Computer Class. They were subsequently challenged to build a device that could be held by the Dash robot and then to program the robot to draw a variety of shapes, including a square, a circle, a triangle, and a hexagon. Our Dashes successfully transformed into artists and it was a successful experience for all! #STEMatSLS Wonder Workshop
