This week year 6/5 boys were put to the test to solve the problem of how to successfully power a LEGO car. Students used Innobits to create a circuit, which then drove their creation. The boys also created a basic warning system using a slider module and a LED module. Well done boys!
We have a new club at ICSS, Tech-Know Kids! These switched on students from grades 3-6 are at the service of teachers and students, ready to give a hand with any technology issue. Tech-Know Kids meet each Thursday in the library at first break to develop their problem-solving skills.
Students have been experimenting with Innobits and LEGO in STEAM PUNKS. This week’s challenge was to create a robot with LED eyes. Students created the robot, then threaded long LEDs using LEGO Technics bricks. As an extension, students created a movable appendage.
