Ms. Hanna from Durham NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Domo Arigato, Mr. Robot: Robotics in the Classroom!

My students need 2 Scribbler Robots (S3) to begin learning to code through hands-on experience. Each student will learn about coding and STEM in order to be successful in the 21st Century.

My Students

My students are an amazing group of thinkers, doers, and provers. They love the ability to work hands-on, and always find interesting ways to problem solve. Though they tend to shy away from completing difficult tasks at times, their resiliency does not allow them to let problems remain unsolved. They have immeasurable amounts of energy, and are constantly looking for the next assignment to complete.

Every time I look at them, I see myself.

Many of my students are growing up in the same neighborhoods that raised me. Our school is a Title 1 school that has free breakfast and lunch for all students.

Each child is great at something, but some cannot see beyond failure. Every student deserves the chance to find their strengths, but sometimes it has to go beyond "reading, writing, and 'rithmetic". My students are a wonderful group of individuals trying to make their way through all their uncertainties.

My Project

The Scribbler will give my students hands-on experience with coding that some of them have only read about in books. They will use the Scribbler in a variety of ways. They will go through lessons that will have them understand what the robot is capable of doing, and how the program works. They will then have a variety of in class competitions, from robot dance offs to drawing competitions. All leading up to the end of the year project, where students will have to go through a maze, and complete an obstacle course, all through programming.

Students will work together to write individual programs to help their robots create art, solve problems, and overcome obstacles.

These are lessons that students can easily transfer into their own lives. This simple introduction into STEM will allow those students that are focused on their failure, a window into success, and hopefully spark student interest into STEM careers in the future.
