Wolftrap Students are Lego Builders!

For three weeks our students will participate in a Group Lego Build in the Candace Leyton Innovation and Learning Lab. Check back daily to see our progress. This week students from Kindergarten to 6th Grade will build robots together. Students will eventually program the robots to complete tasks in our Innovation Lab!

Week 1- Students start from scratch and begin to construct the robots. They were given the choice to use the directions or build on their own. Eventually the robots began to take shape and the students were having a great time. Unfortunately we were hit with another snow storm so week 2 started with more building.

Week 2: The robots needed some more TLC due to the snow last week. We spent Monday and Tuesday finishing the robots. On Wednesday the students learned how to program the robots off of the NXT robot box. They could perform simple commands (move foward 5 rotations, turn 90 degrees, etc). We learned that some of the boxes needed a firmware update which also halted our progress a bit but the students were up to the task and learned how to program the robots and had a great time with them. A special shout out to our Super Innovators in 3rd grade who taught a robot how to score a goal (video is below). Next week we will use the NXT software on the desktops
