My Students

My robotics students are absolutely amazing and are ready get started with the Lego EV3 robots! We are preparing to compete in the TCEA Robotics Competition in January. These kiddos are exploring the world of code and are eager to try new things and share their knowledge. Through our STEM program and growing robotics and coding programs, my kids are exploring new technologies and how we can use them not just in our class but how other teachers can use them as well. I would love to take credit for their enthusiasm, but my kids teach me new things daily, and their excitement is contagious! They are definitely why I love my job!

With all that being said...WE NEED MORE LEGOS!

These kids are ready for their robotics challenge, but overcoming our budget deficiencies is the first challenge.

My Project

My students are working to compete in the TCEA Robotics Competition in January. We have enough of the LEGO Mindstorm basic kits, but in order to make the robots work more efficiently and to be accommodate my students' ideas, we need to purchase several of the LEGO Expansion Kits.

These innovative kiddos need the LEGO Expansion Kits as they contain more parts and pieces that will allow my students to make their robots more efficient and able to accomplish more tasks within the competition.

With your help my students will have the opportunity to create the robot they have imagined!
