Girls in STEM at AGM
The Girls in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) fifth graders at AGM recently participated in a engineering event with Lockheed Martin to learn about programming and robotics.
The girls worked in teams of two or three to program their Sphero Robots to navigate through a challenge course. They learned different ways to program while using math skills to control their robots. The final contest was to use a Block Programming language to instruct their robots to get closest to a target and win a prize.
The event gave students the opportunity to practice and learn about the various aspects of STEM, using hands-on, fun activities.
