Building Bridges in Skills Block

The students in Mrs. Exelby’s Skills Block have been busy of late!

The “Bridge Build” activity asked students to program a Sphero (a spherical robot) to traverse a bridge of their own design and construction. This meant building courses out of popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners, straws, and more for the robot to travel over.

This Skills Block represents the marriage of newer technology (programming) with good old-fashioned building and construction using logic, planning, and decidedly lower-tech materials. You can check out some of their awesome work below!
