My Students

I am a K-2 STEM teacher who is trying to cultivate the inventors and innovators of the future. The school where I teach is a Title I school that has primarily African-American students. It also has students who are Hispanic, Multi-Racial, White, Asian, and Haitian. Academically, the school is low performing. The majority of the students live in low income areas and receive free or reduced lunch.

My perception of the students that I teach is that they are like diamonds in the rough.

Despite their circumstances, most of my students come to school energetic and ready to learn.

My Project

Coding is an excellent way to teach students how to think critically, problem solve, and be creative. The Ozobot Evo will help my students to further practice these skills. My students will create an obstacle course for the Ozobot Evo using color code to make the robot move in certain ways. The students will use color markers, like red, blue, black, and green, to code the robots for movement. For instance, they can code the robot to move slow or fast. The students will use their creativity and make meaningful codes for the robots to move. Once the students finish their obstacle course, they will test the Ozobot Evo on it to see if the coding was successful.

Even though the students use markers to code the robots, the robots will only work if the students use the markers in a certain way.

The thickness of the lines makes a difference in the movement. The students will figure this out as they do the project. This is the problem solving part of the project. The students should enjoy creating codes and learning how to think critically using the robots.
