My Students

Our sweet southern town is home to a small section of a rural school district with 4,400 students total. The town is committed to the education of their children and is very involved in the school community. The majority of students in our school district come from low-income households; the average income in our district is $19,000 a year. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch daily.

My students come to school with a wide array of backgrounds and experiences, and they are loving and eager to learn.

However, many of our students come to school without basic classroom supplies, and budgets for materials are limited.

My Project

Ozobots are an ideal platform to promote a creative, innovative and imaginative environment in my classroom. Ozobots are robots for the next generation of creators. Ozbots can be coded two ways: online with OzoBlockly, the traditional block format, or screen-free with Color Codes with can be drawn on paper or created with a tablet.

My students may incorporate art and their knowledge of coding, math, and science to produce one of a kind Ozobot.

We can even race, and set up obstacle courses for their robots to complete. These kits will help my classes to go from just coding online to creating code to control robots.

Coding helps students with many skills they will need in the future such as logic, troubleshooting, perseverance and collaboration as well as the basics of different coding languages. Therefore, all of my students will benefit from a basic knowledge of coding.

These robots will make coding come to life for my young creators, and develop skills for future jobs requiring 21st Century skills.
