Our 4th and 5th grade students come to school with a variety of experiences, backgrounds, and learning differences. Our coding and robotics club gives these students an opportunity to use teamwork and innovation to problem solve and think critically while engaged and excited.
STEM, coding, and robotics are vital skills for students to be able to use in a world that is continually becoming more technologically advanced.
Several of our students that struggle academically found success at school through participating and competing in coding and robotics activities.
The materials I am requesting will be used with the robotics club I am coaching this year and to be used with teams in future years, too. This will be the first year that our school has had a robotics club. We will build on skills that many of our students learned and practiced in coding club last school year and in participating in the district's technology competition. The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Core Set provides everything the robotics team will need to build their robot to participate in the FIRST LEGO League competition in December. The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Expansion Set has additional bricks and elements that students can use in addition to the Core Set or to replace any pieces that break or go missing while building and practicing before competition.
Your donation to this project supplies materials for my students to work collaboratively using critical and innovative thinking to build robots, compete in the FIRST LEGO League, and expand their STEM knowledge.
I look forward to seeing the growth and innovation that your donation will bring to my students through robotics and STEM.
