Beginning Vex Robotics

Last week, the third and sixth grades began their robotics unit using Vex IQ robotics kits. They are still in the initial building stage. They thought this would go a lot more quickly than it is. More than one team has had to take apart and rebuild their entire robot due to mistakes. It is a trying process, for sure, but they are hanging in there, learning how to be patient and appropriately express frustration.

When children build things with their hands, they improve fine-motor skills, develop better spatial awareness, and engage in critical thinking.
