Ollie Robot   

Mrs. Lora Whitener’s fifth grade class uses Ollie robot to experience the principles of forces and motion instead of reading about them. Students ran the Ollie with and without the rubber tires to investigate friction. They also tested inertia and Newton's Laws by programing Ollie to run in the classroom.  Ollie was made possible by a DonorsChoose.org grant awarded to Mrs. Whitener.  Click to read more about the grant.
