Summer School Program for Elementary-Level Students
David & Mary Thomson Collegiate Institute. July 10 to 27, 2023
From July 10 to 27, 2023, the Pink Titans mentored students in grades four and five on coding and robotics. The opportunity was a part of the summer school program for elementary-level students, at David & Mary Thomson Collegiate Institute (DMTCI). The Pink Titans, with students from FRC 6135 and FTC 19500, constructed and implemented programs for the young students, using the coding & robotics platforms. Students used the Phidgets platform with soil moisture sensors to determine the moisture content of the soil, growing certain crops in the Thomson Urban Farm. Students also used the Phidgets, plus the CyberPi platform, to code an avatar to make unique movements on the screen. Furthermore, students used the Codey Rocky platform to control a robot to navigate an obstacle course. Thanks Principal Awara and the summer school staff at DMTCI for the opportunity!
