In-School Field Trips

Description: Get lost in the world of coding while designing and problem solving to avoid obstacles and overcome challenges. Students will look at basic coding principles and how coding works. They will be challenged to design, create, and test a variety of mazes, coding people, objects and robots to reach a goal. Using knowledge learned, students test, problem solve and rework their mazes to ensure a desired outcome. Using fun programmable mice to navigate the mazes, this is an engaging program that will have students thinking about computational design. Will your mouse get to the cheese?

Format: Our experienced presenters deliver curriculum-based field trips right in your classroom.

What Teachers Are Saying

The activities presented were excellent. Students really had to think carefully about how they were going to get their mouse through the maze. This field trip made students do more of the thinking and exploring, rather then having them listen to a leader and then doing the activities. All students were participating for the entire morning. My students said this was their favorite field trip so far. (In-School program)
