The EV3 Mindstorms kit from LEGO Education will provide the hands-on, engaging learning experience to supplement curriculum for our students in grades 3-5. Students will have the opportunity to test, collect data, examine their results and make adjustments for rotation in degrees, measurement in various units and the sensors that come with the kits. In addition to benefiting students during math and science classes, the kits will be available to "check out" for teachers in grades 3-5. I have been trained on LEGO Mindstorms and will be leading PD for 3-5 so that they can use them to their full potential. We are also attempting to start a Robotics Club and will use the EV3 as the basis of our club materials. We will learn coding, problem-solving skills and apply them to real-world problems in the First LEGO League competition. Our school recognizes the importance of STEM education and hands-on learning experiences for all students. We believe that the sooner children are exposed to unique careers and engaging material, the more likely they are to pursue those careers and see a real purpose to their learning. This project aligns with many Common Core math standards (MD, NF, NBT) in addition to Next Generation Science Standards. EV3 provides an opportunity for students to engage in problem-solving and communication skills while applying their learning. We are so excited about the possibility of beginning a STEM program that directly benefits students in grades 3-5.
