Fourth-graders learn how to build, program and test robots

After-school enrichment program underway at all four elementary schools

Fourth-graders throughout Homer School District 33C are learning how to build, program and test robots during an after-school enrichment program.

 

Taught by Homer 33C teachers, the STEAM AHEAD WITH EXPLORERS program challenges students to delve further into science, technology, engineering, art and math.

 

Dozens of students from Butler, Goodings Grove, Young and Schilling schools have signed up to participate in the workshop series.

 

They will be working in teams of four to five students, learning how to build, program and test robots using LEGO MINDSTORM EV3 kits.

The workshop is sponsored by Homer 33C, University of Illinois-Will County Extension and 4-H Club.
