The students are members of Laura Cudmore’s Grade 7 language arts class.
“The unit that we were studying is about the influences of technology in our world and the way that robots can help people in different fields of work,” Cudmore said. “As a representing project, students created three-dimensional robots using recyclable material and then wrote a paragraph about the qualities, the skills and capabilities of the robot. So if the robot were created, what kinds of things it would do and how it might help people or the world.”
She said the students showed their individuality with their selection of materials and their creations.
“What has been really interesting to observe is… how the students selected the materials and put them together and how each one is different and the way their own imaginations were displayed,” she said. “We have ones designed to help plumbers. We had ones designed to help children with special needs. Ones designed to help factory workers. There’s a wide variety of things that they selected to write about.”
