I teach Physical Education 10/20/30, Shop 9/10/20/30 and Robotics at George McDougall High School

I have been teaching at George McDougall for 5 years and am currently teaching Physical Education, Shop and Robotics. I am also coaching the Cross-Country, Badminton and Track team as well as George McDougalls Athletic Director.  Robotics is in its third year at George McDougall and is currently being offered at the grade 9, 10 and 11 levels. At the grade 9 level we are using the "EV3 Lego Robotics" and the 10/11 we are using "VEX Robotics" software and program. Grade 9 is a basic introduction into concepts and ideas of programming that will set students up for success in the 10, 11 and 12 levels. Lego Robotics uses an elementary drag and drop language to program the robots to carry out multi-stepped tasks. Next year we will be introducing a new and more advanced program to the grade 12's.
