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.
