Wednesday Wacky's Team was the first to successfully create and program their robot.  More videos will be posted as other teams finish.  

7th Graders are working in teams to build and program robot that perform a variety of activities.  There are many different robot designs that they are creating.   Through communication and collaboration, students use Lego Mindstorm NXT kits to create a functioning robot that must accurately perform its function.  Once complete, each member of the group must create their own program which will be uploaded to the robot making it perform a different and unique activity.  Our 7th graders have been doing a great job working as a team, each helping to build a part of the robot, and then working together to think outside of the box when they are out of parts or something isn't working properly.  The teamwork and critical thinking skills that these groups have shown is just amazing.  Great job 7th Grade!!
