Second graders were challenged to design chain reactions using Maker Space STEM kits. Students collaborated, designed and tested the chain reactions. Improvements and redesigns were part of the learning process!
Last week, Hillcrest students kicked off Computer Science Education Week by learning how to program BeeBots. The little robots were funded by the MEF grant: Books, Bytes and Bots, which is helping to create maker spaces in the Morris School District's K-5 schools. This week students are working on the Hour of Code, learning the foundations of computer programming through fun, age-appropriate games on www.code.org.
