We're excited to introduce a new six week Robotics Program to our Elementary students, with the help of the Peapack-Gladstone Library. Our first session was on Monday, March 25th, and the students were thrilled throughout their initial encounters with the robots.
Below are some details on the program:
Each class will be approximately 45 minutes
They will start by learning basic movements forward and backward, left and right.
They will progress by teaching the robot how to do multiple sequences of maneuvers.
Overtime they will teach the robot to navigate through the story map. The story map will be based on our school play. They will program the robot to navigate a map that visits the different ecosystems: the Antarctic, the Sahara desert, the rain forest and, a coral reef.
