Do the Robot 1

My students need a robotics kit for class and our FIRST Robotics competition team. The robot and magnets will help us be able to compete and learn STEM concepts in class.

My Students

Remember all the fun you had learning while you created things like spaghetti towers? I have many kids who are ready to move on to the engineering challenges presented with robotics. We also plan to compete in our first robotics competition this year.

Our school serves a diverse population of students from many countries and many backgrounds.

They are a happy group who come together to help each other learn and perform acts of service for the community. They continue to hold the record for most money raised for Relay for Life in our area, despite being considered a high poverty school. They pride themselves on their annual "Helping Hands" day where the entire school spends the day scattered across town helping the community in other schools, soup kitchens, nursing and retirement homes, and other charities.

My Project

Our high school students have been very successful in the FIRST robotics program. So successful that they have expanded from four teams last year to seven this year. The excitement generated by their success at the world championship competition the last two years has gotten so many students excited that they ask me about robotics almost daily. In order to satiate their intense curiosity and better prepare them for the high school teams, I have formed a robotics team. Robotics is also now offered at our middle school as an elective for 8th graders. The competition group needs more supplies to be competitive with the more established teams.

Our capacity to engage the students with the engineering of robots is only limited by our supplies.

We have been able to accept 20 students into the competition teams, but there are 25 more that we have had to turn away for the time being. These supplies will be used for those not able to participate at this time.
