Due to our being at home last spring, quite a few 5th graders would have missed out on an EV3 robotics experience as they move on to the middle school. Doing these short cycles now will ensure they have some EV3 experience.
Students are showing persistence and flexible thinking. They are also striving for accuracy and even showing humor as they work through challenges.
Our other grade levels may have to wait until next year to do a robotics cycle, but they will have plenty of other computer science opportunities this year as we continue to use Scratch and CoSpaces.
