My Students

Students at our school are passionate about coding and programming. My students completed two lessons with Hour of Code and loved it. They loved trying to problem-solve to help the Fuzzy get through a maze. What they liked is they know they can tell the computer what to do to solve the problem.

My Kindergarten students loved telling Fuzzy in Kodable how to make it through a maze without hitting the wall.

They made mistakes but kept going back until the problem solved a solution to the maze.

My Project

This is a unique opportunity for our kids to explore, learn and have fun with robotics and digital materials. Students will love to figure out how to code a mouse. My students love to program the mouse to follow the maze they have created with the green tiles. They can try it and fix it again until they get it right. Students can then try harder mazes with bridges to go under. They can create more challenging mazes to program their mouse to follow.

My students will be excited to learn how to work as a team to make their projects work.

Robotics and coding are what they get excited about and what they are passionate about.

Thank you for giving our students such a great opportunity to grow as future scientists, engineers, and coders in the 21st century.
