D.V.S.S. School in Drumheller has robotics and coding classes that keep expanding and growing every year it is offered.

Aaron Mitchell, the teacher of the robotics and coding classes said, "Last year we had a class of only about 13, and this year has been up to about 25, so it's increasing. It's all hands on."

The "Hummingbird Project," that ended the school year was a huge success for all who participated.roboticsclass

"It was kind of like a half art project and half robotics. I make them have 3 sensors that have 3 different outputs, those can be lights and motors so that they can make the thing that they create function in a way," detailed Mitchell on how his robotics classes work.

"There is going to be Jr. High robotics next term and we'll be going through the same things," says Mitchell, "We have a group of em bots, which are like little remote cars that they can program and they have sensors on them as well."

The robotics classes have been maxed out for the next term. There will be 33-36 students in attendance.

Robotics is a part of our every day lives. New ideas and technology have come a long way and students seem to be enjoying it.
