LA PUENTE – Edgewood Academy students in third through eighth grades will present Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) and robotics achievements during the second annual Celebrating Bassett showcase from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 9 at Torch Middle School.
The robotics class was formed in 2016 as part of Edgewood's GATE enrichment program.
“I want an engineering degree in the future and robotics will help me get to that goal by giving me the experience I need,” eighth-grade robotics team member Kenny Le said.
This year, the robotics class theme is “Into Orbit.” Students are building and programming robots to accomplish space-themed missions. GATE students are practicing the four Cs of 21st century learning – critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication – while building projects.
