Bottin Our Way to Botley

My students need Botley the Robot to learn and explore how robots work.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I have 20 fun and energetic students who love to be in school. They love to explore and are really beginning to understand print concepts!

We are a high needs school with a diverse group of fantastic students.

The students are learning at extreme rates, but I want to be able to help them instantly know if they are understanding the concepts.

We have flexible seating to help us get the wiggles out! My students are unique and love to learn about new things. I believe that they should have the opportunity to learn in the way they need to. They need engaging and fun materials that are engaging for all.

My Project

We need the Botley Robot to learn about how robots work. This amazing robot will help my students investigate mechanics and how to create different obstacle courses. My students love to explore new concepts and ideas and this is perfect for their little hands to explore.

They will use the Botley Bundle to have hands on exploration of robots and how they work.

These students are interested in mechanics and love to explore the world around them. They would love to use the Botley Robot to make their own challenging course and see what robots can really do. Their imagination makes being their teacher so fun and enjoyable and I cannot wait to see what this Robot would allow us to explore!
