Rum River North Starts Coding with Students
An image of three LEGO Boost packs for Rum River North studentsStudents at Rum River North started a coding unit in January. Students are learning this 21st century skill through the building and manipulation of a LEGO robot. They are also solidifying skills with an online learning tool called Code.org.

Teacher Brad Tolzman saw the opportunity come up when he noticed an Innovation Grant offered by RRSEC. This is a program where Rum River comes along side teachers and empowers them to try an innovative and new teaching strategy in the classroom.

In these pictures you can see the beginnings of the LEGO that has a motor and processing unit that is controlled by an iPad. Once the robot is fully built they plan on running challenges with the robot and making it beat-box. There are other things the class can build with the same kits. If time allows, they plan to try another design and do tasks with that also.

Great Job Kids!
