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!
