High tech Legos…

Thanks to a donation from Chevron USA, Rangely students are working with the high tech Lego Mindstorms EV3 which lets students create several different types of robots made of Lego blocks, motors, and sensors. The EV3 lends itself to coding, robotics, and math and science topics like measurement and physics but there are plenty of humanities applications waiting for students to discover in that bucket of parts. While not for everyone, this is a great tool to engage students in ways we would have never thought possible 20 years ago. Students will be offered a semester long class and they are in the process of putting together a team to participate in the First Lego League.  Matt Scoggins photo
