The students at Cooke STEM Academy are learning to work together to build and program robots! The Cooke robotics team, consisting of students in grades 3-6, uses the Lego Mindstorm kit and iPad coding program to assemble and program the machines under the direction of a community volunteer and Bosch engineer. Students are developing critical thinking, problem solving, and engineering skills as they build, manipulate and troubleshoot their team robots.
“They also have discussions and video lessons about real world usage of robotics such as Amazon’s packing and shipping process and how robots can impact productivity,” said Karlyn Singleton GNA for Cooke STEM. “The team is excited about their first year entry in the DPSCD sponsored robotics competitions.”
