  • 3rd Grade Works with Robots

    Students in Mrs. Kintzley's class learned how to program Ozobots. Mrs. Goldberg, a parent, brought in a set of the Ozobots and the students controlled the speed, direction and movement of the robots. Ozobots introduce students to simple coding and teach skills such as deductive reasoning, while expanding their imaginations. Click here for more photos.
