Third Grade Robotics
Posted on 01/25/2016

McMinnville School District and the McMinnville Education Foundation provide a traveling LEGO Mindstorm Robotics kit that reaches each 3rd grader in our district.  

In groups, students construct each robot, learn to program them for an antonymous course, and then compete at Evergreen Space Museum in a Jamboree at the end of the unit. 

MSD 3rd graders are reading informational text, following directions, applying STEM practices and, most importantly, having fun!  Here is Ms. Starkey’s class at the beginning stages of the unit…building the robot (actual course is in the backgroup!) Keep an eye on our website as the unit continues into February. 

The Jamboree will be February 5th at the Evergreen Space Museum.  Check with your child’s teacher for specific times.
