Nicole's project based learning superstars.

  • By Nicole Isabelle
Jade and Laremy jumped into their problem based learning challenge with both feet!  Under the direction of Nicole, their teacher, this video is the result or their research into robotics.  They then selected a "beetle bot" project to put their knowledge into practice, applying simple logic circuits to create a "thinking" robot.  Last but certainly not least, they Used Final Cut Pro X and green screen to created this video to document the construction and testing of their project.  We are all very proud of these two. Well done Jade & Laremy!
