Invaded by Ozobots

Lower School - STEAM Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math

The Fuqua Lower School has been invaded by Ozobots, tiny robots that teach students all about programming. This is part of Fuqua School’s STEAM education program presenting an innovative way to teach subjects like programming, math and science in the classroom. Students become engaged and inspired when topics come alive with the help of Ozobot. Ozobots can identify lines, colors, and codes on both digital surfaces, such as an iPad, and physical surfaces, such as paper. Monica Coleman, Lower School Media Specialist, is working with Lower School students teaching them the ins and outs of coding. Students use a chart to draw a pathway for the Ozobot to turn, speed up, stop and spin. Students enjoy creating their own codes to help Ozobot move in these ways. Soon, students will take this skill set and apply it on the iPads to watch them move and dance.
