I am the STEM/Computer Science teacher at our school in South Ozone Park, Queens, New York. The vast majority of my students are from low-socio-economic backgrounds and face many hardships in their daily lives.
My students are energetic and curious, and they motivate me to create new and exciting ways to keep them engaged every single day.
They love coming into my STEM classroom because they know they will be challenged to think outside the box with a hands-on task they must work together to solve.
I am asking for the Bee-Bot Starter Pack, which comes with one rechargeable Bee-Bot robot, four activity mats, 49 sequence cards, and a USB cord to recharge the Bee-Bot.
With the different activity mats, I can create a variety of lessons for students to practice sequencing, problem solving, and basic coding skills.
Students will be able to work together to figure out how to get Bee-Bot to a given location. Activities can be directly linked with math, science, or social studies units being taught. For example, during our science unit on animals, students can program Bee-Bot to travel to all pictures of mammals, using an activity mat.
Please help me bring pure joy and excitement into my classroom with this Bee-Bot Starter Pack, please!
