My Students

My students are always eager to come to school to learn new things. They have such an excitement for coding, new technology, and the engineering design process.

My students are energetic and ready to learn new skills; they are excited to try new things and make discoveries to deepen their knowledge.

They are four, five, six, seven, and eight year old children and they can’t wait to explore and develop new 21st century skills. They come from varying backgrounds and they are just beginning their adventure in coding, robotics, and engineering. My students are willing to try new things, make mistakes, learn from their mistakes and they are ready for new engaging opportunities.

My Project

The Botley robot is a great opportunity for students to work through the Engineering Design Process. Students build a maze for a robot named Botley and then program him using a remote controller. When Botley moves through their maze, if he doesn't make it to the finish line, students have to discover where the problem (bug) is and what they need to do to solve the problem.

They have to ask questions, imagine new possibilities, make a plan, test the plan, and continue to improve their plan.

Student needs are very different. This robot has a remote controller where students enter a code, that code is sent to Botley and the robot moves accordingly. This type of robot is very different than the ones we currently have in the classroom and will appeal to different student needs and interests. It is a hands on approach to coding that is completely screen free and a lot of fun!
