Teenagers are the best part of my job. They’re inquisitive and passionate. They’re funny and forgiving. They’re always ready to try new things. As the librarian, I get to work with ALL of our students in a variety of classes. Yes, we explore books together, but we also work in the makerspace, try green screen apps, and try our hand at coding. They’re terrific about jumping on board with new ideas we try in the library. Kids are especially enthusiastic about wanting to code!
Students struggle with understanding DNA sequencing and how it affects genetic outcomes. My biology department and I have created a series of DNA coding lessons that use actual coding to help students experience how to sequence genes and what the effects of the code sequences mean. All that is missing is a way to see the codes they create in action. Having multiple robots will allow us to pair students and give more individualized instruction and experience. Our goal is to eventually have enough robots for each student, but pairs are a great start! Hands on learning makes a huge difference!
