My students need a Dash and Dot Robotics kit to bring coding into their classroom.
This project expired on February 3, 2016.
Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are hungry to learn about coding to be able to fully comprehend cause and effect in robotics with the use of Wonder Workshop Dash Dot robotics.
All of my students have special needs and are a few years below grade level.
Learning is difficult for all of them. We are a Title I school with many of the students on free or reduced lunch. There is also a strong math and science magnet program that my students do not get to participate in.
My students LOVE the small amount of coding that they were able to do and would greatly benefit from this program from Wonder Works Dash and Dot.
I have a two period math block. We are able to fit out direct instruction into the first period. I bring real world math projects for the second period so that my students are able to experience how math is used in the real world.
My students were able to do some coding last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. By using the Wonder Works Dash and Dot kits, my students will be able to take coding to the next level. I envision my students competing in teams of two cooperative groups pitting their robots against each other. Aside from learning math, coding and robotics, my students will learn valuable team building skills.
Please help bring fun, relevant, hands on STEM projects into my classroom.
This project is geared towards students at my students level. It's not so difficult that my students want to give up or lose interest, and it's fun enough so my students will want to spend quality time on it and it.
Math is very boring as well as difficult for students with special needs. Projects like this help my students to compete with the general population.
