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:
- Why is important to write the code down when you program the robot?
- What was your favorite thing to code and why?
- If you had more time what else might you have wanted to design/create?
- What are some things you want to teach your teachers about coding?
Have a great week!
