News from the Lab

All students visit the lab once a week. Grade K students visit the lab for 30 minutes and grades 1-5 visit the lab for 50 minutes. 

NEW!! This year we will introduce Grade 5 students to VEX Robotics and intergrate STEM learning in our curriculum. Students will walk through the design and use a pre-built robot to code the robot to program it to complete tasks. During this process they will learn key STEM principles, and robotics concepts. Once students have learn how to give basic commands, they will learn how to incorporate additional sensors to the simple drivetrain to add functionality. Students will then work in groups to create a new version of the drivetrain with additional functionality. They will have to consider the use of each sensor and how it can aid in their design. Coding skills are essential for students today, our grade 1-4 will be working with the new Sphero Edu. & Tickle Apps to learn to code using the iPad or Android tablets. These apps teach more than just programming. The lessons integrate STEAM activities like Math & Science and push the students imaginations.

Code Club- Sponsored by Computerwise Education Sign Up Here Join a Code Club today! To help young girls and boys explore, investigate and develop an interest in technology and science Computerwise education is setting up a Computer Club at local schools. The clubs are volunteer based. They would meet on a weekly basis, and would be “free” for all students to attend. The club will encourage collaborative learning, be youth centric and offer a stimulating learning environment. They would explore emerging technologies and they would be self-led with a project based learning. Students would learn to develop coding skills in many languages, and design, build and program robots.
