What is Innovation?
Innovation can look like many things…but you probably never thought it could be students creating a mini-golf course featuring robotic droids instead of golf balls! Greenwood’s 1st through 5th graders have been busy collaborating on a variety of challenges with the support of a terrific tandem of Technology teachers. The tool of choice is Sphero robots!
Check out the short video below for highlights of their innovation in action!
We believe that if the appropriate support and cutting-edge tools, our students can do more than we ever thought possible. That’s why we’re committed to innovation and cultivating 21st century skills like collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.
We’ll be adding our 31 Sphero robots to our fleet of Mobile MakerSpace carts in the coming days. Teachers will be able to check out the robots and other MakerSpace carts to support student learning and creativity throughout our school.
A huge thanks to Adam Hinnenkamp and Kate Asmus for helping students to learn the basics of blue-tooth syncing, coding, and more.
