Building Robots: STEM Fun

My students need five Remote Control, STEM Robot Building Kits. This will introduce them to the world of STEM and Robotics.

My Students

My school is a large Title I school where eighty percent of the students live below the poverty line. My students are racial, academically, and economically diverse. Yet they are also hardworking, enthusiastic young people full of potential and possibilities. They have lots of life and energy.

They love to learn, especially in new and exciting ways, and they recognize that they are part of a larger, generous community.

Please consider helping me to make this their best year ever!

My Project

As a kid, I loved to build. I built houses and roads out of blocks and Legos. Today, those building materials have evolved and are being used more and more in the classroom. I understand why. Kids LOVE to play, so what better way is there to teach them than through building, a form of play?

Building robots that move would be a perfect way to end the school year.

My students would enjoy the last few days and may not even realize that they are learning valuable logic, math and science skills. Therefore I am asking for five build your own robotics kits that my students may use in groups to dabble in the world of robotics and STEM. Maybe it'll be the spark they need to join a Robotics First Club in the future or enter either a math or science field. You never know.
