Albuquerque Elementary Students Build Aquatic RobotsMay 9, 2017
Fourth and fifth graders from two elementary schools in Albuquerque got to show off their engineering skills this week at the SeaPearch Aquatic Robot Competition. As KRQE reports, the competition is a perfect way to show off the critical thinking skills they’ve learned in the classroom under high standards. The competition allows students to better understand the things they’re learning in the classroom when they can see it implemented in real life. “They have built an underwater robot, and built it throughout the year, aligning it with common core standards,” said Alma Ripley, the assistant principal at Carlos Rey Elementary. It’s another great example of how teachers are inspiring their students to think creatively as a result of high standards.
