My Project

Botley The Coding Robot and Code & Go Robot Mouse will benefit students both in the afterschool learning robotics club for 3rd-5th graders, as well as students in my regular first grade classroom. We have over 30 students who meet weekly in an introduction to robotics club and are excited to be introduced to the world of robotics and STEM. Unfortunately, we don't have enough materials for all of the students to be able to participate actively so many students have to watch and wait their turn due to the very limited kits we have.

Help provide our enthusiastic 3-5 grade learners with more hands-on, simple robotics and coding kits to help them begin engaging more actively during our learning robotics club meetings.

Each week, these toys and kits will give students a chance to work with materials to enrich their understanding. In addition, these kits can be used with students who aren't yet old enough to be in the robotics club. I will use the materials in class with younger learners to help enrich their education and encourage them to continue exploring STEM in the future.
