Mini-Grants in Action at Whitcomb Elementary

“Educating with Edison Pt. 1 and 2” are Mini-Grants awarded to Ms. Miller and Ms. Michalak at Whitcomb Elementary. Edison is a programmable robot designed to be a complete STEM teaching resource for coding and robotics education for students.

“Whitcomb would not have been able to sponsor a robotics coding club this spring without the generous funding through CCEF,” stated Ms. Miller. “Their enthusiasm is contagious and rewarding; they are learning about intervals, degrees and all the basics that a programmer needs to start coding. Next fall these students will be invited to join Edison Club Intermediate as we move from Edblocks to a more sophisticated programming language called Edware. It is our hope that the members of this spring’s coding club will also facilitate a Beginner’s Edison Club in spring 2019 as Whitcomb commences becoming a Leader in Me school. Thank you so much for providing our students with this opportunity!”
