Students and staff of the Brocton BOCES traveled to the Jamestown Comedy Center on November 19th, 2021, for a field trip.

Elementary students learned about the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and constructed their own balloon parade floats with the help of robots called Ozobots. Students connected their learning about the eye and vision in Science to how Ozobots (a type of line code robots that use optic sensors) operate. This project also allowed them to learn to code the Ozobot floats to parade down "Broadway" using screen free color codes.
Students in Mr. Kowal's robotics class built robotic parade floats using modular robotics kits called Cubelets and other materials in the STEM lab. This project was inspired by the Macy's Day Thanksgiving parade.
