Ms. Garner from N Riverside IL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need marble runs to make kinetic connections to coding.
My students are in a Title I suburban school. They have a great quest for learning and a love for all things technological. These students want to learn more about robotics, coding, and building to solve real-world problems. This year, we are introducing a new curriculum to support learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
My students are inquisitive, resourceful, and inventive.
We want to provide a creative outlet for their energy and ideas. My students have had a taste of robotics, and are anxious to do more.
Technology is a wonderful tool, and sometimes we need to see our technology in real life to understand all of the various parts of a product. My students enjoy coding, and I want to take a hands-on approach so that students can see (and feel) how one block affects all the others.
By building and using marble runs, students will be able to see first hand not only Newton's Laws of Physics but also how small changes can make a difference in both a physical and technological manifestation.
Students will be using various learning modalities in designing and building, as well as practicing collaboration and a sense of community when we try to attach our marble runs together!
