My Students

The students in my school have really taken to the projects that we have put together. The climate in our school is shifting to one of students who enjoy making, building, and learning how things work. The students have thrived in a hands-on environment that projects like this create.

My students have shown the desire to learn with new technology.

The students continually amaze me with what they come up with. They ask some great questions that they strive to find answers for. Throughout the day I support students from other classrooms with special projects that they are working on.

My Project

Botley is one of the only coding robots that grows with the children. From basic navigational functions to advanced features that will get him through obstacle courses, direct him down pathways made from black lines, and allow him to detect objects, this little robot does it all.

After mastering the basics, kids can test out their coding skills with the Botley’s Action Challenge Accessory Set’s chain-reaction challenges.

Build and solve puzzles with the set’s falling dominos, swinging hammer, rotating gate, and more!

Aligned to CSTA & ISTE Technology Standards, Botley is the first classroom-appropriate early coding robot to be STEM approved by STEM.org.
