Help Us Engineer Robots!

My students need a robotics kit, Lego Mindstorms, to practice structural engineering and computer programming.

My Students

My students come from over 25 countries and speak nearly as many languages. They are all English Language Learners (ELLs) who have come to the United States seeking new opportunities. They come with the hope that education will allow them to meet their full potential.

In addition to the monumental task of learning a new language, they must do so while meeting the same high school requirements as native English speakers.

They are an amazing group, but our district cannot always give us the resources to match our ambitions. Science and engineering are democratizing disciplines, because they engage students of all types - writers, mathematicians, builders, artists. When these students get together to collaborate on a problem, the sky is the limit.

My Project

There is no better way to get kids excited to learn science than to give them problems to solve that are hands-on and open-ended. What can be more creative than building and programming your own robot? A robotics kit and easy to learn software will give us two opportunities - a chance to flex our creativity and learn another language - computer code. Along the way it gives us a chance to work collaboratively and practice speaking with one another in English. In addition to using this kit to model solutions to problems in biology (can the robot model the behavior of insects?), I also plan to use it to teach students more about robotics in our after school science challenge club. My hope is that this can be a springboard for them to explore more opportunities in science, engineering, math, and technology.

Please help me unleash our students' creativity while they have fun with science and engineering.

They have come to the United States to learn and make themselves the best they can be. Your act of kindness and generosity will help shape their future.
