In our Engineering & Technology Club for 3rd-5th grade, students will explore four technology units during the 32 weeks of classes. In each unit students will use the Engineering Design Process to design and create different engineering projects. Units: MinecraftEDU, Crime Scene Investigators, Video Game Design, EV3 MINDSTORM LEGO Robotics. What’s more fun that playing a video game? Writing one! We are moving into the big time here in the 3rd-5th grade club. We will teach the students how to design, test and improve their own racing video game utilizing Microsoft KODU. Vroom Vroom! This class is a perfect mixture of fun and learning, using LEGO® EV3 MINDSTORM™ Robots. Using LEGO® bricks, students build various challenging designs and how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer. And then, … why not battle each other! Wait, what? Minecraft? Well, not quite exactly. Shhh, don’t tell your kids but we’re teaching them how to solve real word engineering problems in a virtual world. But why? Think NASA Mission Control… how do they repair the various rovers racing around moons and Mars? Just like we will in this class, except their world is real. In Crime Scene Investigators, we will teach the children how the good guys put the bad guys away. Fingerprints, DNA sequencing, and vehicle crash investigations are just some of the topics we will touch on to ignite your child’s imagination of being one of the good guys!
