North Elementary, with huge support from SUU, is bringing robotics to our school! Dr. Cecily Heiner, SUU professor of computer science, wrote a grant that brings "Finch" robots to our school from October to December this year. Finch robots were designed at Carnegie-Mellon University's CREATE lab and are meant to help integrate computer programming and robotics into reading, writing, math, etc. Dr. Heiner and some of her college students will be helping us learn to use the robots over the next few weeks. Lynae Puckett, our media specialist, will be taking the bulk of the responsibility for this program. Thanks so much to Lynae and Dr. Heiner for this great opportunity!
