This grant will expand the Bee-bot introductory robotics program for M.L. Day first graders. Bee-bots are small robots that the children can program to move. This is a hands-on approach to STEM learning, and writing algorithms. Children learn communication, listening skills, creative problem solving, and critical thinking through self-directed work.
