About My Students

My students are extremely eager to learn! They love finding out about the world around them. We had a conversation in class about robotics and they divulged that it fascinates them. They wanted to learn more about how a robot really works and they were super excited about possibly being able to get their own robots not only to build but to code the robot's movement as well.

My students' rock and I would love to give them the opportunity to enhance this student-centered activity, follow their passion, and build their confidence about electronics and robotics

I am a 21st-century technology teacher in a large, urban district. I understand that science, technology, engineering, and math need to be at the forefront of my teaching. Having students choose the robot they want to build and then coding that robot to follow commands will greatly enhance their learning. In a world full of electronics, the majority of students do not understand how these electronics are put together. Having access to these robots will create a classroom that is more mechanically inclined. It is vital for my students to be exposed to the newest project-based learning models.

During our study of robots, students will be working cooperatively in teams, which promotes teamwork, and will help them in their future life when it is necessary to collaborate on a project.

In order to promote a student-centered classroom, students will be able to choose which commands they want their robot to perform based on how they are coded.

In Their Own Words

Andrea: "Our goal is to build the robot correctly and use coding to make it move the way we decide."

Izaya: "The goal we want to accomplish is to work together to make the robot so that it moves in the right direction based on how wrote the code as a team."

Ashley: "Each group has 4 people in it and each person has a job. If each person does their job right, then the robot will work and we can show our leadership skills by helping others in the class that are having difficulty."

Sharik: "I think it would be fun to take our robots to the little kids in 1st or 2nd grade to show them how we worked together to make something so cool."

Ray: "It is important that we work together as students because when we grow up we will have to do that no matter where we have a job."

Uriel: "The challenge building the robots will solve is that we all have to work together in a group and decide together what we want our robot to do."
