Floral Park Bellerose Students Learn About 3D Printing and Robotics

posted Jun 12, 2015, 7:22 AM by emurray@nyittbls.org


The Floral Park Bellerose Elementary School hosted the STEAMed Van where the 4th and 5th grade students programmed and competed with the Darwin mini robot in push-ups (Darwin won), designed fun and unique 3D Printing projects. Students also used their motion (and an understanding of geometry) to create characters and smiles.

On December 9, 2014 NYIT Technology Based Learning Systems (TBLS) visited a group of third grade students who were introduced to hands on activities in robotics by interacting and programming the NAU robot. Students were able to express their creativity with simple circuits and learned how to use instruments to extend their senses with Vernier Probes. All students were exposed to an individualized experience that allowed them to see science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics as a fun exciting way to express themselves an solve challenges.
