Spider Bots

Here are a few of the Spider Bots that the students have been creating. We worked on this project with our other 5th grade Lighthouse teammates. It was great to see everyone fully engaged in engineering practices such as designing, identifying problems, coming up with solutions, and redesigning. I was very impressed with all the creativity, problem solving and cooperating going on during this fun activity!
