What a year it’s been for us at CA Math & Science Challenge. Our mission to empower teachers with effective sTEm curriculum has begun in earnest with schools throughout San Diego County.
For instance, Ms. Bolling, the new head of the robotics program at Innovations Academy Charter: using a curriculum that included our Challenge Trees and Coaching/Assessment Checklists, Ms. Bolling helped every K-8 child experience some level of robotics programming at Innovations.
We have continued to support the wonderful teachers in our Hoover Cluster as they strengthen their own robotics Robotics programs.
What started out as an after school robotics programs is starting to work its way into the regular classroom schedule as teachers experience student growth in independent problem-solving skills, coding, mathematics, and engineering. The 3rd-5th grade students at this cluster had two opportunities to participate in weekend Challenge Event Tournaments:
- Junior Botball Challenge Event held at host school Hoover HS and
- The very exciting Southern California Botball Regional Tournament., held at USD.
