My Students

My students are clever, creative and problem solvers! I have 64 gifted and talented students ranging from grades 1-5. They come to Challenge one day a week where we study 3 units a year. This year we are studying meteorology, fine arts and chemistry. My students are all lovers of learning! They are constantly wondering how they can take our topics of study to the next level! They always ask how and why things work the way they do! They look forward to new learning experiences and love hands-on activities.

My Project

This year during our Fine Arts unit, we can use the Spheros to paint with! They will roll through paint and the kids will be able to see their code on paper. We will also be able to use these robots in our Coding Club and during our technology unit next year.

This project will allow them to use their imagination and build problem-solving skills that are essential to a 21st-century learner!

There are so many reasons to teach kids about coding and computer science. Technology will play a constant role in their lives and they need to be introduced to how it works!
