Dashing Along with An Ozobot

Help me give my students a Ozobot and camera to learn computer coding through a robotics team.

My Students

As Barack Obama states, "Computers are going to be a big part of our future ... and that future is yours to shape." As educators, it is our responsibility to prepare our students to be productive members of the twenty-first century in the field of computer science.

I teach a dynamic bunch of enthusiastic and creative fourth-grade students who will prepare for a bright future.

My biggest challenge is having technology resources for all children to prepare them for jobs in computer science. My goal is to get an Ozobot and camera for STEM activities. The purpose of having this Ozobo and camera is to allow students to complete STEM activities. The camera will capture the special moments of learning in the classroom. I teach a multicultural fourth-grade class in a Title I school with limited resources.

I teach a multicultural class in a Title I school with limited resources. I teach students from various cultures, including immigrants from Africa, Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East.By the end of the year, I expect to see students' reading, math, science, and social studies levels to rise.

My Project

My classroom is in need of a camera, and an ozobot. I utilize many websites to teach children how to code. My students love coding so much that they crave more. This inspired me to want to take learning to the next level by incorporating movement and interactive play as students interact with robots and build obstacle courses and mazes with LEGOS. This robotics First team challenge will foster movement and interactive play with the students. I would like to use the camera to capture the special moments to display student learning.

The students can get creative and use their imagination to play hands-on games as they move with the Ozobot.

We need to empower our children to become makers of the technology. Teaching computer coding through computer science engages students in interactive games and activities that are hands-on. I love to see the smile on children's faces after they code their own creations with the Ozobots. The camera will capture these special moments. By using an Ozobot, students can build obstacle courses and mazes. This will allow children to imagine the endless possibilities of STEAM learning and robotics and build confidence at the same time. Having an Ozobot will enable me to pair my students up as they move around the classroom and interact with the robots in a cross curricular fashion. The students can challenge each other as they work in teams to create challenges like bowling challenges, perimeter races and construction challenges with the ozobot. The children will be able to build communication skills, teamwork, critical thinking and more when working with peers. Let's fund this spectacular project today!!!!
