Stephen Grzybowski, a STEAM Museum presenter, facilitated a STEAM Robotics exercise and showed what a robot could do to the New London Elementary School students before allowing them to experience hands-on educational exhibits. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art and math.
NEW LONDON — Olivia Yetter and Pailee Wilson each enjoyed the interactive robot named Naw the most of the hands-on activities in the traveling children’s museum.
“It can do what we do,” said Yetter, who was most impressed with seeing Naw dance. “It moved a lot.”
Wilson said she liked that the robot could “sense what we do and then do it.”
“It’s a great little program. It’s something I believe in,” Grzybowski said.
Mobile Ed Productions, Inc., which focuses on education through entertainment, brought the traveling museum to New London for kindergartners through fifth-graders Wednesday. Based out of Redford, Mich., Mobile Ed Productions has been in existence for 10 years.
“I am booked solid until May 30,” Grzybowski said. “If they’re in school, I’m in school.”
At one station, students created routes on a tablet, which an Ozobot was programmed to follow.
