Gifted Support Students at Willow Lane Elementary School took part in the Wonder Workshop Wonder League Space Missions. Using coding and robotics, students in Grades 3, 4 and 5 met once a week after school with Mrs. Julia Dweck, Gifted Support teacher, to solve 7 different space-themed missions. Students utilized problem solving and creative thinking skills to solve progressively complex coding challenges using the drag and drop Wonder App. The final mission was to send a message out to the world regarding their experience. Students sang their message in a music video titled, Soar! The melody is from the song, “We’re All Made of Stars” from the Broadway show, Finding Neverland. The revised lyrics are based on the students’ feedback about the importance of focus, determination, teamwork and believing in your dreams.
