Psyche Mission – Finding Hidden Figures … Exploring Spatial Skills
Practice math skills by coding a floor robot with 4 simple commands. Building Connections & Understanding + Real-world Application is a mathematics practice to prepare students to use patterns and relationships. Bee-Bots can help build those connections! Come Dance with the Bees and see how you can use these and other unplugged activities to build computational thinking skills in the lower grades.
People often ask me if I know the secret of success and if I could tell others how to make their dreams come true. My answer is, you do it by working. I suppose my formula might be: dream, diversity – and never miss an angle. – Walt Disney “The Quotable … it was all started by a mouse.”
Activities on codemathTEKS to give you 90 degrees angles to build diversity and dreams in your classroom.

Bee-Bot Activities Using Design Model
Part of doing good research is sharing what you have learned with other scientists. That is how science progresses… It was two lovable Hollywood stars (R2D2 and C3PO) that served as enduring and endearing AI inspirations for Cindy. It was HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey that inspired her mentor, Rodney Brooks, to study artificial intelligence (AI). – “Robo World – the story of robot Designer Cynthia Breazeal” by Jordan D. Brown 2005
It is YOU who can inspire the next Designer.
