Valley Stream Union Free School District Thirteen’s Wheeler Avenue Elementary School students recently enjoyed an assembly called BOT—which provides students the opportunity to interact with robots face-to-face. The event, sponsored by the Wheeler Avenue PTA, covered all things robots including what classifies as a robot, real world applications for robots and the history and modernization of robots.
The STEM-centric assembly was hosted by David Jack and his robot counterpart Cozmo. Together, they took students on an entertaining and educational adventure to learn more about robotics and the importance of a STEM curriculum. The District continuously seeks new opportunities to bring learning to life—even when that means bringing robots to life.
