The students in Year Four created projects using Scratch, a block-like interface developed by the MIT Media Lab. The children programmed their sprites to travel through New York and activate an action when arriving at a tourist attraction.

After, they used Makey Makey which allows students to take everyday objects and combine them with their Scratch Game. Makey Makey works through opening and closing circuits, just like any other button. Instead of the circuit being closed underneath your keyboard, the circuit is closed through the conductive objects you connect with alligator clips like your hand or some tinfoil bricks. We connected the circuit through 19 people!

 

Lastly, the children sent NYC 'taxi' Bee-bots, programmable educational robots to travel through key New York attractions!

 

We were shocked at the positive learning outcomes!
