Robot Rodeo--Sharing and Learning

One important goal of my enrichment programming is to provide students with unique and varied opportunities.  This week I was able to take several students to Dynamic Landscapes in Burlington Vermont.  This education conference is attended by many educators interested in innovating their teaching practice through learning from each other.
We were presented this opportunity because of our involvement in the first ever Vermont Robot Rodeo.  During the month of January RES students had participated in Robot Rodeo ( I blogged about this here:  http://robotrodeovt.blogspot.com/2016/01/cubelets-explore-halls-of-richmond.html and here http://robotrodeovt.blogspot.com/2016/02/richmond-elementary-says-goodbye-to.html and here: http://robotrodeovt.blogspot.com/2016/01/cubelets-arrive-at-res.html). 

I was very proud of students as they presented and shared their knowledge with educators.  These few students represented RES as they shared their passion and excitement for learning.  I hope that those that visited our booth learned about robots and understood the value and high engagement that these sorts of innovative opportunities give to our students.

A special thanks to Mrs. Hackett for sitting with us and to parent Sherri Gouse for providing students with a ride!
