Being that March is Women’s History Month, for this edition of #OzoThings, we’ve rounded up awesome STEAM activities shared by female educators and creators on Twitter.
Ranging from Spring-themed activities to discovering ecosystems and building cities, it’s been an eventful month for Evo!
Check out some of our favorite photos and videos of Ozobot STEAM activities from March!
Kaitlin Chidester, our featured March Outstanding Educator Spotlight, used Evo, along with Color Codes and Ozobot Blockly, in her science lesson to teach fifth graders about ecosystems. Students coded Evo to go through the different levels of an ecosystem, showing the connection between population, community, organisms and life cycles. Keep it up, Kaitlin!
Girls who code (with Ozobot Blockly)
Girls just want to code! We always love to see girls engaged in STEAM. Since March is Women’s History Month, we especially enjoyed these girls coding Evo with Ozobot Blockly in an exciting STEM challenge! The sixth grade class at Cascade Christian Schools brainstormed solutions to STEM challenges and then wrote code in Ozobot Blockly to move their robot to solve the problem. Way to go, girls!
Spring has sprung!
The Spring season is upon us, symbolizing growth and new beginnings. One of our favorite Spring STEAM lessons is the Spring pollination garden lesson and we were thrilled to see students enjoying the activity in Sherri Rickman’s class at Roanoke County Schools earlier this month. In this lesson, students create an interactive model of a flower garden to demonstrate how animals help with pollination. This Spring STEAM lesson is always one of our favorites this time of year!

Female Educators Putting the ‘A’ in STEAM
Inspiring female educators, Emily Fiedler and Janet Parks, really put the ‘A’ in STEAM at Elmwood Elementary with this art meets computer science activity. Fifth graders created sculptures to build a complete ‘city’ and then coded Evo to run errands throughout the city streets using line following, timed movements and more. This awesome STEAM activity was certainly a sucess for both educators and students!
