Coding & Robotics
Coding has been identified as one of the highest-need areas in the near future--and this means lots of future jobs! So in this unit, we introduce students to coding, and then students can apply this coding into building and operating robotics kits.
Students will start in basic coding using code.org. This will provide a basic foundation which they can continue on into other forms, or continue with the code.org curriculum if they take STEAM multiple times.
The robotics kits we have are Lego EV3 Windstorms. These kits were acquired through grant funding from two local sources: "Families for Estes" and the "Estes Valley Sunrise Rotary". A big thank you goes out to both of these organizations--the purchase of these robotics kits would not have been possible without this grant funding.
