It was a great day in Fort Calhoun, programming drones to fly through hoops. “Only thing that would have made it cooler is if the hoops were on fire!!” That was a quote from our end of the year tech day at Fort Calhoun schools. It was talking about one of the five sessions that over 200 students participated in on Monday, May 15, 2017. Over 100 3rd and 4th grade students partnered up with over 100 7th and 8th grade students to run through and experience technology and in plethora of ways!
Along with navigating drones through a obstacle course, the students also became engineers by designing objects that would hover in a wind tunnel, program Sphere SPRK+ Robots through a maze, design rockets that were aerodynamic out of 2 L bottles to see who’s would fly the furthest, and program their own unique song with tools on an iPad.
The day was a huge success with an educational experience unmatched. Fun was had by one and all!
A big thank you to all of the staff members that helped at Fort Calhoun Schools that without their help this would not have been able to take place.
Also, a huge shout out to ESU #3 for helping support this day! You three were just incredible! Thank you Jeff Ingraham, Greg Schwanke, and Dawn Peterson Ferreyra.
