My students are racing excitedly into a new area of learning: robotics! As part of this project they will learn how to build LEGO EV3 Mindstorm robots. They will also learn to use a computer coding program to control their robot. My students will have to work as a team to make their robots complete tasks and overcome obstacles. I want to prepare my students for the advanced technology they will use throughout their lifetime. Technology changes and grows at a rapid pace and we cannot predict what today's students will see when they are adults. Participation in STEM endeavors now will help them prepare for the future. This project is the beginning of a year-long endeavor. Our hard work and practice will prepare us to compete in a local robotics competition at the end of the school year. I hope these students will continue to take an interest in robotics and other STEM endeavors after the school year is over.
