Demorest Elementary Receives Robot Grant

Demorest Elementary fifth grade classes enjoyed programming Finch Robots in the Media Center on Thursday, Feb. 21st. The robots are part of a grant that Mrs. Angelia Baker, DES Library/Media Specialist, applied for and received from Birdbrain Technologies. The grant has allowed Demorest Elementary cutting-edge opportunities through the transformative power of integrating robotics into the curriculum. Students learn to code by giving the robots commands. They learn that the robots will do exactly what they command them to do, nothing less and nothing more. This experimental learning requires critical thinking, creativity, and collaborative interaction with peers. Other grade levels at DES will also be given the opportunity to work with the Finch Robots.
