Westwood Regional Middle School
The elective courses enable students to build upon and expand their horizons. Programming skills and further development of procedural thinking skills are acquired in MicroWorldsEX through the creation of various animation projects. Students will also use Lego Mindstorms EV3 graphic software to direct robots. The Lego building kits provide the opportunity to create humanoid and vehicle robots, which connect to computers with student written programs. The combination of EV3 Robotic building kits construction and programming with MicroWorldsEX provides a powerful vehicle for experimentation, exploration, and logical thinking.
