My students need a Lego Mindstorms starter kit to begin our Robotics club. They want to expand the scope of our after school club to include Robotics with the hope of having a competitive Robotics Team.
I teach in a diverse urban neighborhood where our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds and where over 60% of our students receive free lunch. We have a high percentage of students (nearly 2/3 of the student population) who speak a primary language other than English at home.
Our students come to school ready and eager to learn and apply what they have learned to real-world problems while utilizing an array of inquiry, fine arts, media, technology, and content.
As we continue to explore our new STEAM materials for this year, my students have asked for me to include robotics in my after school gaming and technology club. This will build on the skills they have gained in coding, electricity and engineering. To that end, they will be using the Lego Mindstorms Robotics kit to investigate how to build and code robots.
In order to bring their requests to life, students will interact with their own robots!
We need the Lego Mindstorms EV3 kit which will help them make the connections they need as they begin their forays into robotics. They are hoping to be able to build a competitive Robotics team for competition in next year's events.
