My technology class is full of students who want to explore robotics and computer coding. They are interested in STEM activities. This is amazing because I was going to teach them how to use Microsoft office and they want to learn more.
"I want to learn robotics so that I can enjoy math and science more", stated a student in the club.
These students want to learn robotics to become more engaged in their math and science classes, to learn something new and to get ready for jobs in the STEM field.
I currently have 24 students who are in my technology class and they are sharing 2 robots. I need additional robots so that more students can work on the robots.
Currently there are 12 students all wanting to work on robots which is more than 3 times what is recommended.
This project will allow more quality time with the programming and building of robots.
The students will learn coding, problem solving, math, science and technology using the LEGO robotics programs and lessons. One of the first projects they will complete will be to design an autonomous vehicle.
My students are excited about learning STEM, which will help them become our future engineers, programmers, and leaders.
They will find answers to problems without filling in a scan-tron. The students will learn how to work together to solve problems. Math and science will mean more than just a test. Their subjects will have meaning, which will help them learn.
