At the end of the first semester, students have to disassemble their robots and say goodbye. First though, they present their work to their classmates. Each team completed the same exercises, but the design of their robots and code
were different. The presentations provided an opportunity for students to discuss the differences and how they impacted the efficiency and accuracy of their robots. Classes like Robotics help students understand that there are often multiple solutions to the same problem and encourage students to engage in problem solving, collaboration and critical thinking.
In addition to the Cold Coffee bulletin, the Journalism class maintains a Cold Coffee website. The website hosts the weekly video bulletins, club and college information, and more. In fact, under the More tab you will find a link to information about submitting an announcement. That's right; the Cold Coffee staff want your input. Teachers, student clubs and administrators with announcement needs can submit video or a request for Journalism students to create video for a future broadcast.
Students participating in the Science Fair have a great resource to help organize and prepare. The Science Fair e-pack has all of the information necessary to ensure the highest level of success for all students in their scientific inquiries. It includes everything from the mission and vision of the project to rubrics and poster guidelines. Several of the resources are new this year including Project Inspiration and the Engineering Design Process. This digital resource will help guide students to the successful completion of a scientific study that benefits students as researchers, investigators, designers and knowledge creators.
