Cameron 2/21

Our week at Cameron was quite different than usual, but it was certainly a fun and informative experience! As the students began a unit on inventors, with a particular focus on Steve Jobs, we thought that we could have a good time with some activities that mimicked coding! After watching a video that explained some programming basics, we gave students a sheet that had sample commands and designs.

These designs and commands were for students to imitate programmers and a "robot" that would follow the "algorithms." Some students would write commands using this formula, which would allow other students to build a cup structure. After sequestering our "robot," the students got to work! After writing down directions on a sheet of paper, the separate student would return, and try to recreate the picture by using the sheet. 

Though there were some struggles in this new style of activity, our students came to love the concept! We hope to build on this idea of coding in the future, and we think that, along with readings on inventors and computers, we can help the students in writing some basic code. 

Some of our students built impressive displays, and we can't wait to see what happens when we transfer these skills to other pursuits!

    Repliche Orologi
    a long time. thanks for posting it. while there are different grades

    of replicas,( some better than others) it is best to read the reviews from the owners on

    these boards to find out Svizzeri Repliche

    the real quality of a watch you are wanting to purchase. never listen to a

    seller just arbitrarily saying his product is grade 1 or AAA. he only wants your money.
