Students in Grades 2, 3 and 6 demonstrated the latest coding activities to the Kenilworth Board of Education at the February Meeting. The students’ demonstration included robots moving mountains of imitation snowballs and provided insight into the programming taking place in the new makerspace at Harding School. Learning the basics of coding has taught Harding School STEM students how to problem-solve using math skills while having fun.

 

Harding teachers started the year's STEM program with students in all grade levels being introduced to code.org and a variety of unplugged lessons to introduce the concept of coding, and they then moved on to coding “Dash”, a colorful and engaging robot using a laptop and colored blocks of code. Next, students in Grades 3 and 4 worked with “Ozobots” that have sensors to read colors for instructions on movement. The coding for ozobots can be designed with colored markers or software. Harding students in Grades 5 and 6 worked with the robot “Sphero”, a larger and more sophisticated robot that requires instruction by heading and duration of speed for movement.
