Discovering STEM with Robots in Fifth Grade Gifted
This is a picture of a student working with LEGOs.Our 5th Grade gifted program is using Lego Mindstorms EV3 Robotic kits to design and build programmable robots using high quality motors, sensors, gears, wheels, and axles. When working with these hands-on robotics, students gain a better understanding of how technology works in real world applications. The solutions enables students to understand and interpret two-dimensional drawings to create three-dimensional models. They build, test troubleshoot and revise designs to improve robot performance. They gain practical, hands-on experience using mathematical concepts such as estimating and measuring distance, time and speed.
