5th grade students at Konnerud School
For students in elementary school grades 4 to 7 (ages 9 to 13)
We take the students on a journey beyond the Earth's atmosphere and into our solar system, where they become explorers.
The goal is to investigate the various planets in our solar system and their properties. They will be accompanied on this journey by their own developed robotic assistant.
The robotic assistant can measure:
This interdisciplinary project can combine the subjects: Mathematics, Art and Crafts, Science, Norwegian, and English.
Estimated time: approximately 28 hours
In this project, students will study and explore the various planets in the solar system in addition to using and explaining key concepts from astronomy. The coding project is part of an interdisciplinary theme in 5th grade. During this theme period, the solar system is a recurring theme in most subjects. Over several weeks, teachers in the grade have collaborated on, among other things:
The coding project is divided into sessions in the various subjects with relevant competence goals throughout the period.
In collaboration with Make:kit, we are developing an educational project where students will end up building a robot together with a learning partner and a 3D solar system with their class. The robot will be able to explore the different planets in the solar system via radio signals. Make:kit is developing codes for each planet that will send out signals about gravity, size, temperature, gas, hours per day, length of a year, and number of moons.
Please contact us if you need this code.
At MakeKit, we have extensive experience in skills development for schools, science centers, libraries, and businesses.
We offer courses, workshops, and team building sessions.
Please contact us, and we will tailor a program so that you get the most out of it.
