I have two sections in my robotics class. 12 students each on Tuesday and on Thursday. The Thursday group ended up having one less build session due to parent teacher conferences or some nonsense. As such they have always been just a little bit behind the Tuesday group.
But they are hard working kids and I have been able to lay on some extra help. One of the student teachers in the English department took an interest in the project. And as is often the case I had a parent take me up on my offer to make welcome an additional set of supervisory adult eyes. Both have turned out to be handy fellows, and have been helping kids with the kind of stuff that really should be watched over.....hot glue guns and sixth graders is just asking for trouble.
In any event the Thursday squadron is actually coming up with better looking machines than Tuesday. With one build session left before our 10 November "Machines Behaving Badly" Robotolypse, here are a few sneak previews.
