Saucedo students are scientific thinkers! Our school is a STEM magnet school and students are very interested in joining robotics clubs. Students in the early elementary grades are eager to be a part of design engineering projects.
My students are hardworking, serious ELL students from low-income backgrounds who are excited about learning.
There is something very special about this school and its students. The kids that attend have great potential, are predominately low-income and their school is a STEM city-wide magnet school. I want them to love their STEM lab class, which I will teach. I want them to be able to do all of the things you are supposed to do in a STEM class, including engineering robotics.
Engineering projects are essential for STEM lab. The Lego Robotics Midstorms materials will help students collaborate, problem solve, and gain meaningful hands-on STEM experiences that will help them envision themselves as possible engineers of the future!
These WeDo kits will help put the "e" in STEM for my students.
Students will follow a design process to build their robots and motorize them. They will test and retest their engineering to refine their robot's performance.
The Lego Robotics Mindstorms activity requires collaboration and an understanding of the STEM design process. These students are ready for it, and I can't wait to see what they can do with Lego robotics!
