The STELLAR teachers are Ms. Lohr, Mrs. Messina, and Ms. Jorde.

In STELLAR, students work with various technologies while engaging in enriching activities that build upon the content they are learning in their classrooms. Students participate in group STEM projects that encourage collaboration and creative problem solving. They are also exposed to literature of all genres, and participate in research projects using various resources. 


Destiny is a valuable resource that is used in STELLAR and which can be accessed from home. Clicking on the 'home' tab will list educational websites and resources, as well as access to the Clever login (scroll down to 'websites'). Clicking on the 'catalog' tab will let you search for books in the Wilson library. 

Below are some of the exciting robots we use in our STELLAR classes!

Dash and Dot

Dash and Dot, provided to Wilson
by the RVC Education Foundation,
connect with the Blockly app,
where students learn basic coding
skills while watching the robots
perform many actions!

 Cubelets

 Cubelets, provided to Wilson
by the RVC Teacher Center, are
magnetic robot blocks that introduce
various robotic concepts. Students use
logical thinking to determine the 
functions of each Cubelet and to 
create robots that respond to 
various stimuli.

3D printer
Our 3D printer provides students
with the opportunity to see tangible
results of their ideas and visions.

Scribbler
Students program the Scribbler robots
to design and draw patterns on paper.

Lego
LEGO Robotics allow students to design and build robots.
They can follow steps or come up with their own original
designs.
