It was an exciting few days as our supplies began to arrive. It was almost like the delivery man was teasing us because several box came on Monday but the box we wanted the most was actually the last to arrive. Isn't that always how it happens? Lucky for us though, they came just in time for the school open house so we were able to let our kids in on what exciting things we would be doing. Here is the box with a good number of the Sphero robots we ordered for our STEM craziness this year. With them, we will be implementing robotics lessons into our math and science classes. Looking forward to sharing the lessons with everyone!
Our two weeks of STEM training at SVSU have wrapped up and I am so excited by the amazing contacts we made and all of the things we learned. I’ve already found my Sphero storage solution which will somewhat resemble a house for “my minions”. That’s right, in our 4th grade class the Spheros will be named after Gru’s minions. I already have Bob and Stuart. They will be joined by more than half a dozen friends; Dave, Jerry, Phil, Kevin, Tim, etc. We will also be working on making space for my STEAM makerspace area. It can be hard to figure out but I think we are mostly there. It will be very interesting to see how everything works together. Although I’m not wanting summer to be over just yet, I’m really looking forward to getting started!
