Thanks to Lisa Milenkovic of our District STEM Department and Greg Miller from Ultimate Software we have the beginnings of our own Robotics/Makers Lab. We are in the process of converting Portable 8 into a lab classroom whereby all our STEM classes can go in and learn basic programming. Students will be able to program WeDo lego robotics, Green City stations and Competitive packages. Already we have had a walking field trip to Cypress Bay to learn SCRATCH, which is free to everyone. Check it out at Scratch.MIT.edu. Thank you to Tiffani Slutsky, extraordinary Computer Teacher for having our students over to learn the program!
GLOBE stands for Global Learning Observations to Benefit the Environment. Citizen Science comes alive through this program! K-5 students will do environmental studies known as protocols. They will record data and submit online. Their data becomes part of a worldwide research studies conducted by international scientists.
