Robotics Takes Over At Hughes

The 3-5 grade boys at Hughes are natural science nerds - they love to take things apart and put them back together again. This fall season their coaches incorporate aspects of engineering and design into their homework help period by offering an opportunity to build and tinker with robots and engineering kits.
Travis and his two partners were challenged to build a robot that could move from one place to another using only solar energy. The 3-5th boys worked together in teams to create robots using aspects of the engineering
design cycle (plan, create, test, evaluate, complete) and were rewarded with TLC tickets for level of commitment to the project.
This winter, in partnership with The Museum of Science and Industry, Hughes students will begin an astronomy course: creating models & exploring Mars!
