Beanstalk Robot week is filled with all kinds of things that bleep and bloop. We'll create our own robots, write an 8-bit song together, take STEM classes, and go on a computative imaginary adventure!

You might think all robots are silver and that they can talk, walk, and take instructions, but robots come in all shapes and sizes! Let's explore what is and is not a robot, and bring our own ideas of what robots are to class!
