During this unexpectedly short week back, students returned to their exercises using the Arduinos. They are learning to use various components (and combinations of components) in order to a) better understand the capabilities of the Arduinos and b) better understand how each component works in order to use them, potentially, with the robots that they’ll be building in the near future.
On Wednesday, Sarah (one of our wonderful parents) took the class on a tour AVL Automotive to show us how engines are tested and data is collected. Sarah, along with three other SK parents, will be advising teams of students as they start building their robots.
We also returned to Player Piano. In pairs, students are focusing on one specific chapter in order to identify key plot developments, character developments, themes, and settings. They will present their chapters to the class next week.
