This year, our students have enjoyed having technology class return to their regular Resource Day schedule! Ms. Barnes, an HT graduate, joined our faculty and staff as our technology teacher and has done a great job offering a variety of learning activities to our students.
During the Winter Olympics, our 5th and 6th grade students participated in the Dash Winter Olympics in Technology. Each country (small group) had to code their Dash robots to compete in an Olympic event. They programmed Dash to participate in Speed Skating and Curling. They continued the learning with a new Olympic Event each week and had a medal/award ceremony for the Countries that won the most events at the conclusion of the unit.
Earlier this year, all grade levels also participated in Hour of Code, with many lessons coming from the Hour of Code organization and website: https://hourofcode.com/us.
