PLTW: Robotics & Animation – Activity 3

Our class is currently working on Project Lead the Way – Launch. Our first module is Robotics & Animation. We are currently finishing up Activity 3 where students were asked to design a robot prototype in their launch logs and then create their prototypes using our VEX kits. I am very impressed what our scholars created! What do you think?

All videos were created with the iOS app Splice. Thank you!

Coding with Tynker

For our current #PLTW module activity we were asked to create a game with local and global variables. Working in small groups with our iPads and Chromebooks we commenced our coding using Tynker. We initially started with the basic concept of a dodgeball game. After that task was achieved students began to work individually to customize their games. Students were then asked to using Snagit students created a screen cast showcasing their games. Check out some of the customization that resulted.
