Arts and Bots Winterim

By Amelia Wetherington

Arts and Bots is a class led by Mrs. Lebron where the students learn to program different objects to make them move, turn on, etc. After learning the basics of the technology part of it, they make the art portion and use what they learned from the robotics to animate and make the art more exciting and functional. One of the projects they did was a game like The Wheel of Fortune; they made the “game board” first, then used what they learned to make the “spinner” spin and the board light up. The students learned after taking this class about robotics in general and about creativity.
