Unit III Explores the World with Robots
Unit III students in Julie Guminey’s class are creating a “Grand Encounter” using robotics. Students have been learning about European explorers and Native American nations in their social studies classes. Working in the Creation Studio, students grouped up and were asked to take on the role of a member of a Native American nation or an explorer. The groups designed robots to replicate their historical figure and programed the robot to speak. The robot was also programed to travel around a map and speak when it lands on an important landmark.
