My Students

Our school is in a rural Colorado community with a high Hispanic, transient, low-income population. We have the second largest building in our district. There are 550 elementary students in our building. With this population, we desire to give our students the same opportunities and experiences as schools and families with more resources. We know that STEM provides future career opportunities and we want our students to become involved at a young age to develop a lifelong love of learning and a desire to improve our community and our world. Our students need opportunities to become leaders outside of the general classroom. Due to our population, many of our students may not be able to succeed as well in a classroom setting but can excel in other areas like Robotics. This club will give students the confidence they need to succeed in our changing world!

Last year we were able to include 20 students in our LEGO Robotics club but we had over 80 students on the waiting list to get into the club.

We had to turn them away with a goal of adding more students our 2nd year.

My Project

Our LEGO Robotics club teaches students about coding, designing, problem solving as well as working with a team and presenting their ideas and solutions to others. These skills will propel them in their education and future careers.

The LEGO kits provide challenges that provide opportunities to build these skills and the students love them as they are LEGO!

We want to provide this opportunity to more students at JES. The students then get to attend a LEGO showcase and present their builds and robotics to judges and other students. This provides them with valuable presentation experience. Please help us get more kids involved in our club.
