Lucky for our 4th graders, the Brooklyn Robot Foundry has a location on the Upper East Side! In connection with our STEAM curriculum, students created and decorated their own electronic glow pets. The children were able to activate their newly gained knowledge of electronic circuitry; they wired two LED lights with tilt switches into unique pets that they will bring home. The students came away with a greater understanding of what trans-disciplinary learning is all about.

All year, students in the Lower School have been learning to code and coding principles, which explore skills such as logical thinking, planning, creating, and design. Recently, second graders have been programming Mbots. They were given a few instructions, a challenge, and were then set on the task of completing that challenge. Students transferred the coding skills that they have been learning all year on other platforms in order to drive the robots. Students got to see how their skills and knowledge could be applied to a real-world, concrete problem or challenge. For photos...

Since January, the Lego Mindstorms EV3 robots have made 2 appearances in STEAM class. The connection between science and technology continues to develop for our curious 4th graders. As an extension to Sound and Light units, the student-scientists programmed special sensors attached to the robots. Testing the accuracy of the ultrasonic sensor, students programmed the robot to stop at a certain distance...
