Creativity Comes Alive in Mr. Jeffress' Class


At Bonner Middle School, students in Mr. Jeffress' 6th grade Tech/LEGO class built and activated motorized dragsters to apply their knowledge of gears, wheels and axles, and other simple and compound machines and mechanisms.


In the 8th grade Tech/Robotics class, students build robots and program them to be line followers by using light sensors. Two examples of line trackers can be seen below.

The 6th grade students built mechanical animals which use motorized pulleys, gears, wheels and axles, and levers to activate the movable parts of the animals.
