Mr. Williamsen’s 4th and 5th Grade Technology Classes Try to “Crack the Code”
On Saturday, November 12, 2016, the Edison Middle School LEGO Robotics teams participated at Lorain County Community College regional event. The teams were to test their teamwork skills which are core values. They also completed projects on how animals and humans are able to coexist together. The last part is programming an autonomous robot to complete missions. This tests their creativity in building their robots to complete the missions. They are also tested on their programming ability. The Edison One Team received the judges’ award for being “the team to watch”. Fun and learning was the theme of the day.
