Morgan had its annual, “Robotics Parent Night” on April 25 in the school’s library. This event allowed the parents to share in the same enthusiasm that their kids experience in the robotics classroom. Morgan’s Robotics program helps to prepare students for the eventual workforce by building skills such as collaboration, creativity, and problem-solving while making science, technology, engineering, and mathematics FUN.
Each grade level showcased the projects they created in their Robotics class throughout the school year. Parents also got hands-on experience with some of the many concepts that their children have come to learn and put into practice: simple machines, measurements, physics, sensors, software, technology, engineering, inventions, creativity, teamwork, competition, and fun. They got an opportunity to participate in a contest that showcased their building skills and the winner of the machine built in the least amount of time won Lego kits (donated by Lego’s ®). Also, the parents and students entered to win motorized “Robo-Man” for the door prize. At the end of the event parents enjoyed the cake and drinks sponsored by the school’s Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO).
The event was a great success and enjoyed by all in attendance. Morgan Robotics like to thank our PTO secretary, Ms. Selva Pedro, and Magnet team for their support in making the event successful.
