It was show-and-tell at last night’s Board of Education meeting at Elsmere Elementary School when several students who participate in the PTA-sponsored afterschool enrichment program demonstrated all they had learned in a Robotics class.

The class, in which students assemble robotics kits and learn computer coding to make them function, was made possible through a donation by community member Paul Wing. Mr. Wing covered the cost of the kits (Studica/fischertechnik academic student software and technology) and laptops as part of a pilot program at Elsmere and has been instrumental in helping the entire district expand STEM (now STEAM) learning in the elementary schools.

Thank you to Mr. Wing and to our faculty and parent volunteers.
