Technology in the Science Classroom
Students coded their own “Review Games” to teach a student what they learned in their current unit. Click on the links below to see some of their projects. To view their codes, click “See inside” after you get to that student’s Scratch project.

Students are using Makers’ Empire, SpheroEdu and SPRK Balls to complete my annual Maze Challenge (current 6th grade) and the first annual Medical Carrier Challenge (current 7th and 8th grade). Students also use simulations that allow them to work through various scientific principles.
