Students interact with humanoid robot at interactive STEAM

Goodings Grove students took turns programming a rover robot; building
towers and bridges; and generating electricity with a stationary bicycle
during an educational assembly on May 23.
Mobile Ed Productions, Inc. brought its STEAM Museum to the school,
enabling students to explore science, technology, engineering, art and math
in one immersive experience.
“We’re going to have a lot of fun while learning,” students were told as
they watched plastic shapes materialize with a 3D printer and met NAO, an
interactive humanoid robot.
Students watched in amazement as NAO came to life, stretching, talking
and demonstrating a few dance moves.
Afterward, they were given an opportunity to explore 12 learning stations
where they used numerical sequencing to make a rover robot move;
creativity to program an Ozobot to glide across an iPad; and pedal power to
transfer energy and generate power.
The interactive STEAM Museum was brought to the school with PTO
funding, reinforcing the district’s efforts to
Prepare Future Ready Students
