SCIENCE: IT'S LIKE MAGIC...BUT REAL!
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.WELCOME TO MR. YEE'S SCIENCE & ROBOTICS CLASS!
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 Fifth Grade.
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!
