Robot Babies & Mock Wedding

It’s been a busy spring for the Marriage, Sex, and Family classes at Sobrato. Over the last several months, students in the course have checked out robot babies (infant simulators) which use wireless programming to track how well students care for the baby around the clock. For several days and nights, babies need to be fed, burped, rocked, and have their diapers changed. We appreciate the patience of our teachers and parents with our students as they brought the babies into their classrooms and homes!


This infant simulator uses wireless programming to track and report on caregiver behaviors, including care events, mishandling actions, time in a car seat and clothing changes.

Additionally, students worked hard on their wedding projects as a culminating project for the Healthy Relationships unit. Students were given a budget with which to plan for and design a wedding, from the marriage license application to the reception venue and entertainment to the vows. On Friday, March 29th, they held the annual Mock Wedding ceremony and reception.  Special thanks to Marriage, Sex, and Family teacher Mrs. Kusanovich for mentoring the students and to our Floral Design students, staff, and parent volunteers who helped to make this annual event a successful learning experience!
