Video Feature: MISD principals team up with kids to build robots!
On April 17, MISD principals and students teamed up for an exploration of robotics at the MISD Administrative Complex. Students and administrators built and programmed robots to navigate a model parking lot, use a light sensor to follow a line, and travel in a square. Students representing robotics clubs at Imogene Gideon and Willie Brown Elementary Schools served as coaches for the campus leaders.
Linda Jobe Middle School Principal Elizabeth Hostin said, “I was so excited to be a part of the robotics day with students and principals. I had a great time building and sharing time with my partner, Will. Now I can’t wait for Jobe to have our own Robotics club. Watch out because Will showed me what I needed to do to be successful!”
This year, 18 MISD schools have after-school robotics programs. Schools are recruiting coaches so that the program can be provided at all MISD campuses.
