My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. They are an inspiration!

My students are in a special education setting and have difficulty completing assignments because they become very frustrated.

The programmable bots would help them develop coding and problem solving skills that foster creativity, questioning, and thinking outside the box.

Our school is an inner city elementary school in western Massachusetts. Many of my students receive free breakfast and lunch. Using technology to create and develop thinking skills would greatly benefit them.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, and figuring out how things work. I incorporate a variety of learning strategies, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, however the use of technology provides them with additional support. The students in room 12 are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have such remarkable students to work with.

My Project

My students need Robot Mouse and Super Wiggle-Bots programmable robots. They need a way to explore the world of bots and be creative.. They need Super Wiggle-Bots and Robot Mouse to make it all happen.

The kids in our classroom had a chance to be introduced to coding.

They fell in love with coding. I want to help take them to the next level and have them learn how to code and program robots! I want my students to take their imagination and learning to new heights by creating thinkers and pioneers in the engineering and coding field!

I teach 4th and 5th grade special education classes in an elementary school. My students often do not have an opportunity to learn how to develop critical thinking skills and creativity that fires their imagination with skills they will need in the future.
