GATE at Glen Taylor

Glance at November

3rd grade GATE

This month students will continue their study of robotics by working with Ozobot Evos.  During this unit, third graders will learn to code using Color Codes.  Color Codes, made with markers on paper, teach basic STEAM skills, critical thinking, and debugging.

4th grade GATE

This month students will finish their space unit and begin their robotics unit using Lego EV3 robots.  During this unit, fourth graders will not only build robots, but they will also learn how to code them using the Lego 3V3 block coding software.

5th grade GATE

This month, fifth graders will finish their physics unit by sharing their amazing roller coasters with other intermediate students and GATE families during our "GATE Carnival."  Next, fifth graders will begin their Advanced 3D printing unit by taking a field trip to the Pinball Hall of Fame to learn about the history of pinball machines and get inspiration for designing their own games.
