Fifth-graders in Jeff Faragasso’s and Brian Pelosi’s classes at Mt. Pleasant Elementary recently completed building their first robots. The students built the robots from scratch and tested them by racing in the class’ Indy 500, Robot Edition. They worked cooperatively in groups of four or five, each taking on a role for the assignment. Some of the responsibilities included gathering and organizing the pieces, identifying the next step on the iPad and assembling the robot.
