Finches Land at Bluff Park

May (2017) Bluff Park Elementary has had the priviledge of being host to a flock of (robotic, programmable) finches during April and May. Students used Scratch! and Snap! to write programs on their chromebooks to direct robotic movement. Each finch is also equipped with sensors to detect light, temperature, and orientation in three dimensions (X,Y,Z axis) so that the robot can be programmed to respond in a variety of ways.

Mrs. Evans (STEAM) and Mrs. McGowan (Enrichment) teamed together to offer this opportunity to fourth and fifth grade students.  Bird Brain Technologies selected Bluff Park Elementary to be part of the Finch Loan Program via competitive application.
