The fifth graders started our robotics and automation module by researching a specific robot and creating popplets to share what they learned with the class. Using the Robots iPad app, students learned how robots help do dull, dangerous or dirty work for humans. We then became familiar with our VEX robotic kits and worked collaboratively to design and create a toy with moving parts.
This is my tenth year teaching and my second with Ann Arbor Public Schools. I spent the first eight years of my teaching career as a K-8 technology teacher. I joined AAPS last year as a Media Specialist and I am thrilled to be a part of PLTW this year! In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, baking and spending time with family and friends!
