Six years ago, teacher Bill Gibson of
Morgantown High School received a request by students for a class that would
allow them to gain knowledge and experience related to engineering prior to
entering courses as students at the university level. This request led to the
creation of the MHS engineering program.
This past fall, Gibson’s class collaborated with the West Virginia University Nursery School for their project. Through a Skype meeting, Gibson’s students solicited feedback from the three, four, and five year olds at the WVU Nursery School regarding the type of robots the children would like to see built.
