Students in grades K-2 are busy learning how to make their robots “read” in the library. Ozobots are able to read colors and the students are able to code them to do simple tasks. Kindergarten students are working on coding the robot to move right or left to select the correct sound in a CVC word.

Students in grades 6-8 are learning how to code the robots with simple block coding and then completing various tasks in STEM. They are also finishing up making timelines for Black History month and having the robots complete their timelines with color coding.
