Pomo School students participate in CMAS robot workshop

Pomo School students participate in CMAS robot workshop

CLEARLAKE, Calif. – Ms. Johnson’s second grade class at Pomo School had great fun building and programming Lego robots in a two-hour workshop offered by the Children’s Museum of Art and Science (CMAS).

Students worked diligently with partners and most were able to construct two robots in the time allowed.

Working with the robot kits students had hands-on time to see how gears work. They had to pay close attention to details in the construction of their robot otherwise it wouldn’t operate correctly. Problem solving and partnering skills also got plenty of practice.
 
CMAS offers these free robot workshops to classrooms, after school programs, private and charter schools, and home schooled students throughout the county.

CMAS also is looking for volunteer techies who could assist with these workshops.

Knowledge about the robot kits or robotics is not necessary to start. Schedules and sites of workshops vary.

Call Billy Gear at 707-279-1415 to schedule a workshop or to volunteer.
