Students in Pat O’Connor’s Applications of Technology class at Bailey Middle School used Lego units to build robots! The seventh graders spent 6 weeks coding and building their robots. Despite some failures and frustrations along the way, the final product was amazing! The robots could do anything from dancing along to music, moving like a bug, protecting valuables like a safe, acting as a claw to grab items in hard-to-reach areas, and more! Check out some of the robots in action on Instagram > https://bit.ly/3wr2lNx
