Theme: Favorite Scientists
Today we focused on learning the basics of programming.
Programming: The young engineers became rookie programmers as they explored the basics of Lego’s EV3. With this language they worked on connecting their robots and making it perform simple tasks, such as moving forward, all the way to more complex tasks like following a line.
Teamwork: To start off the day, partners shared their favorite scientist(s) with each other as a way to learn more about each other’s personal interests. Later we tasked our fledgling programmers to apply their new skills sets in a different setting by navigating or “programming” each other through an obstacle course.
