Mitchell Jr. High School received 8 Mindstorm EV3 Robots through a partnership between LC STEAM, Crane, and IU Research Technologies. Mrs. Glassco from the Science Department at MJHS met with Tony Brazzell and Greg Fedrick from LC STEAM to discuss teaching the new Computer Science Standards released in the Summer of 2017. Mr. Fedrick and Mr. Brazzell suggested using Mindstorm Robots to introduce students to coding, programming, and robots. Indiana University Research Technologies donated the robots to Glassco's classroom. Fedrick and Brazzell visited Glassco's 2nd and 3rd period science classes on December 8th to deliver the robots and talk to the students about coding, and the real world purpose of using sensors on each robot. Each robot is equipped with a color sensor, infrared sensor, and a gyro sensor. These sensors allow the students to program the robots to be completely autonomous and to complete challenges without student intervention. Robots will be used in Glassco's science class beginning in January. There is also a small STEAM group led by Glassco that meets on Wednesdays during Jacket Pride. This group will do advanced challenges with the Robots.
