Mrs. Nystedt is our new Technology teacher at Sacred Heart. Did you know that she lived in Washington D.C. for eight years, four years in London and lived in upstate New York for two years? Another fun fact is that she loves downhill skiing. I really like having her help us in robotics. She teaches us new things about sensors, such as color sensors or gyro sensors which detect rotation. I didn’t know how to use any of them on our robots, but I have learned to install them and write code for them. Mrs. Nysted also helps a lot with coding for Mindstorm, which we use for the robotics challenge.
We were interested in learning more about her so we interviewed her.
