My Students

I have 17 eager learners this year. They are hard workers and love to learn. We have a high standard of learning at my school and I have high expectations for all my students. They work very hard and I want them to experience using these fun little robots.

I want my students to be 21st century learners.

As educators we need to prepare our students for the real world and that means teaching them how to use technology. Providing my students with these Bee-Bots and STEM activities will help prepare them and keep them excited about learning.

My Project

Bee-Bots are fun little robots that encourage students to collaborate and they are perfect for teaching counting, sequencing, estimation, problem-solving, and the students also have lots of fun! Students learn directionality as they enter commands for the Bee-Bot to go forward, backward, left and right. These fun little robots will help to keep kids interested and engaged in learning.

Using the STEM science stations, students will be able to explore magnetism, motion and buoyancy by using hands-on experiments.

They get to extend their learning by engaging in engineering activities, which in turn will help to build critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. Having a timer that is visible to the students will hold them accountable since they can see the amount of time they have to complete their work. The set of kid sized flash lights will be used to practice making and looking at shadows. Students will be able to move around the room with flash lights that are light weight and just right for them. Using the see inside bucket balance my students will have a clear view of the objects we are weighing. Students will have fun as they observe and compare the weight of various objects.

These fun little robots and STEM science stations will help my students become 21st century learners.
