At the Board of Education meeting on Feb. 8, the fifth grade students of Glencliff teachers Chris Cipriani and Beth Montrello shared what they learned during this year's robotics unit as part of the Board's Students First presentation series.

In all, more than half of Glencliff fifth grade was at the meeting to highlight the coding, research and problem-solving skills that they honed through the unit. A culminating task was for students to program the robot that they created to move hazardous waste through a maze.

At the meeting, Board members, Glencliff families, and others in attendance rotated through eight stations where Glencliff students led them through demonstrations of various aspects of their work. Principal Shelley Baldwin-Nye recognized the hard work and enthusiasm that Mr. Cipriani, Mrs. Montrello and the students brought to robotics.

This is the second year that fifth grade classes across the district will experience the robotics unit.
