LEGO Robotics Flash Mob

The 7th and 8th grade LEGO Robotics class has been working on effectively using different data types such as time, speed and degrees of rotations.  They had to work together to create a flash mob with their robots by programming them using a form of Scratch Code.  These are just a couple of examples of what they created!!

Towers of Paper - STEM Challenge

Mrs. Kisling's 2nd grade class participated in a STEM Challenge this week.

The students worked in groups to design, create, and test ways to build a tower out of paper. The first challenge was to build it taller than a ruler-not too tough for either group. But the second challenge was to build it strong enough to hold a chapter book!  They had great conversations, worked together, and came up with some great engineering ideas!
