Talk about an advanced curriculum – some local elementary students will soon learn about robotics!
St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School is launching its new weekly coding and robotics classes on Wednesday, March 15.
Students from second through fifth grade will learn how to write computer programs that control how a robot moves.
The lessons teach math, physics and computer science concepts using hands-on, engaging activities.
On Wednesday, March 8, students watched a demonstration in robotics by teachers and students from THINC College & Career Academy in LaGrange, GA.
Jocelyn Smith, principal of the Lower School, says this is an exciting time at St. Anne Pacelli.
“We want students to become world thinkers and think outside the box,” Smith said. “I believe coding robotics is getting them to think a little bit more about not only the device, but how it works.”
Elizabeth Parker, a science teacher at St. Anne-Pacelli Lower School, will use robots and SPRK lessons donated to St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School by a St. Anne Catholic Church parishioner.
