About this Grantee

Autistic students in Ms. Hendrickson and Ms. Gifford’s class increase their communication, technology, and social skills by working cooperatively to program a robot to perform assigned tasks. Groups integrated with students from a typical second grade classroom learn the parts of a robot and how to manipulate the location and gears using computer software. Students complete experiments with polarity, sensors, and switches and apply their knowledge to perform tasks with the robot.
