Two years ago our coding program consisted of one week of Hour of Code activities. Today it is much more robust and includes a robotics component. We have learned about what parts are common to all robots, used software to design our own robots, talked about the ethics associated with robotics, and learned to code. Now we need to actually get our hands on them to see what happens when we program them. Evo is a miniature robot designed to engage children and teach them how to code. What makes this robot perfect for my students is that there are multiple ways to program it, allowing me to differentiate my instruction based on the needs of my students. By drawing paths and codes with markers, students can learn the basics of programming. My primary and special needs students can follow more concrete, color-coded tracks while my intermediate students can use visual block software to program them in a nonthreatening way, making them a perfect, scalable resource for K-5. Gender bias is a genuine concern in 2020. Statistically, women are underrepresented in the STEM fields. The way to change that is to give them experience and success with STEM from an early age to build their confidence. With the world in such flux, it’s more important than ever to ensure equitable access to opportunity, materials, and training for all of our students, especially those who might not otherwise have the opportunity. My students have already shown themselves to be creative visionaries. I want to empower them, all of them, to do more. So far we’ve used games and programs, but we need some actual robots to make our ideas come to life. Your donation of one class set of these little robots will bring programming to life for 225-350 students.
