Supporting Interdisciplinary STEAM Projects through Digital Learning
Students from North Reading High School will explain and demonstrate how they used the design thinking process to approach challenges, interpret learning, identify creative opportunities and experiment mindfully to iterate design solutions. This will include the students self-identified process as students worked through to design a "Stair Climbing Robot" and "Designing Games Using The Unity Game Engine". Students will describe the important mechanical and programming principles that moved them in the direction of being able to design and construct their own projects, ie., personalized learning and learning connected to their own interests. How does robotics in the classroom support college and career readiness? This project shows the culmination of an idea that inspired students to create a stair climbing robot. The demands of e-commerce shoppers are pushing retailers to compete for speedier delivery, which is driving up costs to hire drivers and buy and maintain vehicles while creating more traffic on busy city streets. Students are proposing a stair climbing robot which can deliver food, medicine, etc., without taking up space and is environmentally friendly. Also shown will be students using the Unity Game Engine. These students will demonstrate an original video game idea implementation, preparing them with job skills for real world careers.
