My Students

First Robotics Club at JES:

Our school is in a rural Colorado community with a high Hispanic, transient, low-income population.

We have the second largest building in our district. There are 550 elementary students in our building. With this population, we desire to give our students the same opportunities and experiences as schools and families with more resources. We know that STEM provides future career opportunities and we want our students to become involved at a young age to develop a lifelong love of learning and a desire to improve our community and our world. Our students need opportunities to become leaders outside of the general classroom. Due to our population, many of our students may not be able to succeed as well in a classroom setting but can excel in other areas like Robotics. This club will give students the confidence they need to succeed in our changing world!

My Project

Through having a robotics club at our school, students will not only be able to follow their interests and learn about designing and building robots, but they will acquire many 21st century skills that will help them beyond the club and in the future.

Through robotics, students learn the importance of teamwork as they problem solve together and gain an understanding of programming and coding.

Robotics is also a great way to spark creativity, imagination, and confidence in the students. Students that may not thrive in other areas, will have an opportunity so shine.

First LEGO League Jr. is a great way to introduce students to robotics. Through First LEGO League Jr., teams learn all about a scientific topic (topic changes every year), showcase their findings and build a LEGO model that moves. The LEGO WeDo 2.0 Core Sets are a required part in the First LEGO League Jr. Challenge. Through receiving​ the WeDo 2.0 Core Sets our school will be able to have a robotics club for years to come as these required parts can be used year after year.
