In this episode, #digitalAPS: Exploring Instructional Frontiers highlights the Adam Nesbitt Robotics Day held on Feb. 25. Nearly 100 middle school students celebrated Career and Technical Education (CTE) month by attending the 2ndannual Adam Nesbitt Robotics event at the Career Center.

During the morning session, students learned the basics of programming LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robots. In the afternoon, students were given a series of five challenges including a free form challenge. Some students were able to make their robots dance while others had their robots spin in circles. The event culminated with students showing off their new programming skills by having their robot move a Lego Shark Tank to a designated area.

In this episode, #digitalAPS: Exploring Instructional Frontiers takes a look at student participation in the global Hour of Code event that took place in December.

Coding is the language of computers and thus we need to begin exposing our students to coding just as we introduce world languages to students. The global hour of code is an international event that encourages everyone to take time to experience coding/computer programming.

In this episode, #digitalAPS: Exploring Instructional Frontiers visits Arlington Science Focus Elementary School as students learn about space travel with the school’s shuttle simulator.

For three weeks, students learn about space, the shuttle program and team work by taking part in a shuttle simulation. The system was created and constructed by Michael S.Stanton, who is employed in the Defense Industry and a Retired Navy Chief, to allow elementary students the opportunity to take part in real time shuttle mission control launch and landing simulations. He designed and made the shuttle simulator and designed the Mission Control software himself with assistance and input from NASA.
