2018 Early Childhood Technology Expo

PS 376 is excited to present our annual Early Childhood Technology Expo.  Every year our students in grades K - 2 showcase their culminating projects for the entire school community.  Students touch upon real-world careers, issues, and concerns as they work through driving questions using a project-based-learning approach.  Participants demonstrate mastery of content by delivering presentations using various applications such as Wixie, iMovie, Frames, Scratch, PowerPoint; TinkerCad, and more.   The entire school community is invited to learn from and cheer on our youngest members, and all classes have the opportunity to visit the STEAM Lab, the Environmental Design Lab, and the DreamIt Studio.  This year we are also excited to have a visit with Schmitty the Weather Dog and his humans, Elly McGuire and Ron Trotta.

First League Lego Robotics Jr.

First League Lego Robotics Jr. is designed to introduce STEAM concepts in elementary school while exciting them through a brand they already know and love: Legos. Students are working hard to build models using Lego Education WeDo that respond to an identified problem with the water cycle process. Students will also create “Show Me” posters to present what they learned and showcase their learning at various expos. The program focuses on building interest in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) through a real-world challenge- to be solved by research, critical thinking, and imagination.
