Now with Wonders Technology’s teaching tools educators can teach students as young as four how to program complicated technology, such as robots and 3D printers. The Tech Tray works as an input so that students without reading or typing abilities can easily get up and running. By replacing core programming words with building blocks we’ve simplified the process into something that is easy, fun and paves the way for plenty of in depth learning! Learners can place the blocks on the tray in a bunch of different patterns to make a robot roll around in different ways.

Students will engage in a pen-pal experience this year, but with a STEM twist! To introduce the project, Mrs. Urquidi set up a Blendspace (a digital bulletin board platform).
