Students have parents that have instilled them with a desire to learn and share experiences, life, and hardships with their family within the campus. Students come to the library eager to learn about new books, stories, and to use technology that they don't typically have access to. They know how to read, but it is up to me to fuel their passion for reading, books, and all texts.
My students are eager to use creative materials to connect their learning in the library media center.
My Title I school has at least 80% of the population receiving free or reduced-price lunch who live in a community that was affected by Hurricane Harvey. The students could use assistance in helping them apply academic vocabulary and techniques by having the resources in the library media center that will culminate their reading and learning.
My students need Botley Robots (and batteries) so they can start applying their understanding of coding, and problem solve like engineers. This will bring a new level of engagement to my media center library and help expose students to new ways of learning different skills.
Allowing students time to invent, problem-solve, and create while in the library media center needs to become a reality.
Botley will help inspire the next generation of computer scientists, engineers, and inventors. I am so excited to bring this technology to my media center library, but more importantly, expose my students to the endless possibilities in the world of code and STEAM/STEM.
