My Students

Our school is located in a remote area of Alaska that is full of rolling hills, rivers and lakes, and about 30 miles from the nearest town. There is an abundance of wildlife from birds, moose, caribou, bears, and more. The families of our students live on the abundance of wildlife for their survival.

My students live in a small, tight-knit Native Alaskan community without many amenities such as running water.

We experience some of the coldest weather in the state. Traditions are taught, handed down from elders to the young students. Our community revolves around the community center and the school.

My Project

My students have been exploring robotic systems. We need more and different types of robotic systems to learn how to design, create, and test out. We have been using marble mazes, computer programs, and programmable mice to learn.

We need more advanced robotics to take us to the next step in our learning.

The Cubelets will give my students a new way to challenge their ideas about how to make things move on their own. The wide variety of blocks in the Cubelets kit allow for students to try several different ways to make a robotic. Students can easily change their designs to make it work.
