STEAM Night at Joseph R. Pye Elementary

We attended the Joseph R. Pye Elementary STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) night on March 24th and had a great time interacting with the kids there!  Our table had information for parents to find out more about our club and the Wonderworks robots, Dash and Dot.  The kids had a lot of fun learning some of the basics about how to use the robots and we showed them how to use the three apps that are used to control the robots.  Lily and I were both surprised and overjoyed to find out that many of the students had already done some of the code.org activities with Scratch.  They loved seeing a similar user interface in the coding app for the robots.  It was amazing to see the joy on their faces as they used the apps to make the robots move around and make noises.  I think some of the parents will definitely think about purchasing these robots for their kids as they asked us for more information about them!  There were lots of familiar tech companies that also had tables at this event such as Dynepic, Boeing, and The Iron Yard.
