HEY! WHAT'S THAT T-REX DOING IN MY CLASSROOM?!
...ANYTHING HE WANTS!
WELCOME TO MR. YEE'S SCIENCE & ROBOTICS CLASS!
My goal with every child who comes into my classroom is to unlock the door to her or his imagination and spark a desire to learn. I will create an atmosphere that allows your child to learn new concepts and skills while having fun.
I am very excited to be teaching science to Kindergarten, First, Second, and Third Grade! You will learn to think like scientists and sharpen your skills of observation. Be ready for a year full of eye-opening discoveries!
I am also teaching robotics to the Fourth and Fifth Grade.
Fourth graders will be working with the Legos Mindstorm System. Each class will have one marking period to construct and program their robot to do challenging tasks.
Fifth graders will be creating robotic devices with the Legos Simple & Powered Machines System. They will use problem-solving skills to determine the most effective way for their contraption to operate!
