Glance at February

3rd grade GATE

The first week of February, kiddos will finish their creating their Ozobot fairytales.  I will film their stories and post them to Remind as well as the website.  Later in the month, students will begin their Intro to 3D printing unit where they will learn about the history of 3D imaging, how to design their own 3D objects, and print many of their creations!

This month students will continue their robotics unit using EV3 robots.  Not only will fourth graders build robots, but they will also learn how to code them as they complete a series of fun and complex challenges.

5th grade GATE

This week, fifth graders will finish building their cardboard pinball machines and continue the process of designing and printing their 3D printed obstacles.  Later in the month, kiddos will use paint, 3D pens, and other materials to decorate and put the finishing touches on their machines!
