Lego Robotics

Turner Robotics has been challenged to discover the purpose and need for the honey bee.Groups of students have had to be responsible for creating a model of the bee, it's habitat, and an animal that lives in the same habitat. Their challenge is to determine how they coexist and how they may or may not struggle to survive in the habitat that was chosen. The session's purpose this week was to build their chosen animal and add it to their large model. As the weeks go on students will continue to add to their Lego model as well as adding their research to add to a tri-fold board. By the end of their time together the group will have learned about a habitat, a new animal, and the purpose of the honey bee all shown with Lego's and their tri-fold board.
