Coding With a Mouse & Engineering With a Parachute

My students need Learning Resources Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set and GoldieBlox engineering materials.

My Students

Bubbly, excited, curious....that's how I would describe my class of 22 new first graders! They love to learn and they love to play.

It's been said that play is the way young children understand the world.

Let's give these first graders some "play" tools to understand engineering and coding.

Our school of over 800 students is fairly well funded for reading and math resources, but little money is spent on STEM resources for younger grades. I would like to change that for my students.

My Project

Who would think you could teach first graders how to code using a mouse and a maze? Or learn engineering principles by building a zip-line or parachuting a doll around the classroom?

With the Code & Go Robot Mouse and the GoldieBlox kits my class will be so excited they won't even realize they are learning!

We will use the materials for STEM centers several times a week.

Why not take advantage of young children's natural curiosity and give them an early start on a great future? I can't wait to launch these young learners into the world of technology and engineering!
