Hands on STEM Learning

St Philip Thinking Caps students participated in a workshop on robotics and circuits sponsored by Central Catholic High School. Using the materials and expertise provide by Central, the students were able to program a Lego Robot to navigate a maze and shoot a target, understand and explain the programming and the robot's actions, explain the basic concepts of a circuit, and build a parallel and series circuit from a Snap Circuits kit..Teachers and students from the Oakland school are bringing hands on STEM activities in the form of mini lessons to Diocesan Elementary schools in an effort to stimulate interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math and to increase collaborate between Middle School and High School programs .
