Dot & Dash Into STEM: Programmable Robots Make Learning Fun
My students need Dot and Dash robots for our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Maker-Space Stations.
My sixth grade students work hard, knowing that hard work makes their dreams come true. At the end of last year, on my end-of-the-year survey, my students mentioned they would have liked doing even more hands-on activities in my math/science class.
Our school was named one of 57 National Title I Distinguished Schools for the year 2015 for closing the achievement gap between student groups.
I have a vision that this year my sixth grade students will have fun and choice as they learn math and science using hands-on activities in an environment that meets some important education trends such as maker movement, 21st-century skills, design thinking, and STEM/STEAM.
Dot and Dash programmable robots will make a difference in my students' learning because “These smart robots help teach students the basics of coding, while providing an enriching process that creates both an interest and foundation in its basic concepts.”
Your kind donation will improve my sixth grade students' lives because they will be one step closer to success in the 21st century.
You will give them something fun yet educational to look forward to in the school day. As my sixth grade students use Dot and Dash computer programming robots to problem-solve, creatively think, and collaborate, they will also have fun, have choice, and have real opportunities to fail with technology . . . before ultimately succeeding!
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
