Unit III Creates Robotic Designs

From a cuckoo clock to an ocean scene to an Elvis concert to a gingerbread house, Unit III students showed their creativity and skills with robotics. Students in Tracy Hinkenlooper’s class used what they learned about robotics to add improvements to their creative designs, which they presented to their class in early January. Using their knowledge of lights, sensors, and block coding, each design had a moveable element, like a hula dancer or a spinning rock, and lights, like on lighthouses and airplanes. Some, like an owl and a vehicle, had sensors so it responded to sound or objects in its path. The class will be applying what they learned in their science class throughout the year, Hickenlooper said.
