Creating Code. April 6th, 2016

Today we set forth on uncharted territory-creating our own challenges.  We are doing this in preparation for ‘teaching the teachers’ day in May (stay tuned for further details).  So the challenges were to create a code to have your BeeBot make a shape/letter/object and then have your BeeBot dance.  The results?

Students had a blast getting right to work and writing out code and directions with their partners.  Have the freedom and open-ended ability of creating their own code helped them to think big and create even bigger!

I will post video responses on twitter with #PackInTrain later this week-but congratulate your children at home-they were Rock Stars today!

Dinner time discussion:

  1. Why is important to write the code down when you program the robot?
  2. What was your favorite thing to code and why?
  3. If you had more time what else might you have wanted to design/create?
  4. What are some things you want to teach your teachers about coding?

Have a great week!
