Students Experience Virtual Reality to Extend Classroom Walls

University Hills students are experiencing virtual reality to help extend the walls of the media center and give them a broader base of knowledge. Mrs. Kelley, Information Literacy Specialist, created a plan and due to the generous donations of many UHills families was able to implement it. Students read non-fiction books and then were able to experience the things that they read about. Student leaders helped to manage the experience for their classroom colleagues.

UH Staffs Waves Goodbye on the Last Day

Students Work on Computer Coding

UHills students work together to "reverse engineer" a computer program based on the robotic actions that they observe. This helps students gain a better understanding of sequencing and how coding works. 

4th Grade Coding Club Off to a Great Start!

4th grade Coding Club is off to a great start! Nearly 30 students met with Mrs. Kelley and Ms. Guthard, after school, to work together to learn more about computer coding. This club emphasizes critical thinking and teamwork while celebrating persistence and logic. Students pictured here are creating color symbology codes for Ozobots. The small robots travel on the tracks that students create and follow the embedded codes.
