I've also embedded my slideshow below. Finally, check out the links to the project pages for the spider and the guitar from the videos above.

Check Out These Cool Robotics Projects!
Among the many things I am thankful for during this Thanksgiving week is the dedicated group of individuals I have on my student tech team at Searsport Elementary School. This past Monday was an inservice day for staff, so there was no school for students (they had the week off, in fact). And yet, when I asked if any of my tech team students would be interested in helping me with my presentation on LEGO Robotics and Project-Based Learning, nearly all of them volunteered to come in while their friends were sleeping in on that day. I think that it speaks to what we can create in schools when we establish a culture of high expectations, leadership, and students helping each other (and their teachers too!). They did such a great job and I heard from many teachers how proud they were of them. We even had some time to build some pretty cool creations with the additional four kits that we received! Check them out!
