Benway’s Robotics Program starts at the elementary level and continues all the way through high school. “Jitterbugs” are introduced during the first phase of robotics training. These robots are built with random items, selected by the students, with the goal of movement through a simple battery-powered motor. Through problem-solving and critical thinking, students work to improve their designs and prepare for the second phase. Next, students progress to building LEGO Mindstorms and programming their movements. Once they have mastered these robots, students will advance to programming one of three different E-Z Robots.

Join millions of students and teachers around the world who use the Promethean Board interactive whiteboard to help improve learning outcomes. Combining the simplicity of a whiteboard with the power of a computer, the Promethean Board interactive whiteboard lets you deliver dynamic lessons, write notes in digital ink, and save your work – all with the simple touch of a finger.
Students learn using augmented/virtual reality to better understand how systems are constructed and work. This engaging medium provides students the opportunity to be active in their studies, with the ability to manipulate, explore, and test their curiosity with different lessons. Whether it is dissecting a virtual frog, diving into how the human body works or taking apart a car, our learners hold their education in their hands!
Chrome Books and iPads
We offer programs and technology that exercise the brain and increase its ability to perform four basic functions that are essential to learning: Memory, Attention, Processing, & Sequencing. In addition to the already vast technology-based tools in our school, our students have the opportunity to enhance their skills with our brand new Apple iPads and Chrome Books.
