Fourth-graders at Guilderland school programming tiny robots
Saint Madeline Sophie School in Guilderland started their STEM education program in 2015 when we installed some of our weather instruments on the roof of their school.
Students in 4th grade were working with Ozobots.
These are tiny robots that move according to the code that the students develop.
Their teacher, Alexandra Ballmes, had the students use the Ozobots to solve equations by comparing fractions.
The school also holds STEAM days, where everyone comes together for activities and experiments in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.
