Robotics & STEM

Integration of robotics across the curriculum.

As part of school planning over the next 3 years, robotics and STEM has been identified as an area for integration across the curriculum. We are working collaboratively with classroom teachers to integrate robotics effectively in the classroom and led whole school professional learning sessions to build these teacher capabilities.

The use of robotics in building effective learners:

Robotics programs contributed to engaging our students, these programs will also required them to think critically, problem solving challenages and to be able to work collaboratively.

Robotics has encouraged students’ design thinking skills and sharpened their computational thinking. They will be learning to reflect on their design and programming processes and continually evaluate steps and methods to make improvements.

In classrooms across Woy Woy Public School robotics will be start being used this term. Stuents will have the opportunity to experiment with programming the Dash and Dot robots and Ozobots across Kindergarten to Year 6. 

In Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2, BeeBots were being used to explore the concept of ‘position’ including navigating to locations on local and world maps.

Students in Year 3 & 4 introduce to programming Lego EV3 robots.

In Years 5 and 6, EV3 robots were integrated into science lessons on light. Also beinging introduced to Lego Mindstorm.
