SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- An old-school craft project became a high-tech science lesson for middle schoolers at Scarsdale Middle School recently.
Students worked with the Arduinos electronics program, allowing them to become engineers in the classroom.
Among projects, seventh-graders in Elizabeth Gallo's technology education class created dioramas on an Arduino board to convey stories about science, like how elephants adapt to their surroundings and the sun rotates in space.
In one instance, a group directed a small penguin to slide down some “ice” to join the rest of his family waiting below.
Another displayed how the food chain works by moving a bunny closer to a snake.
